The Super Eagles camp in Abuja is already bubbling with some early arrivals ahead of this Saturday’s crucial World Cup qualifying match against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.
Leading the early arrivals are the duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi who both star in the English Premier League with Manchester City and Arsenal respectively.
Interestingly, both players scored the goals in Ndola, Zambia, that gave Nigeria the winning start it craved for in the World Cup qualifying series.
PREMIUM TIMES also understands that two out of the invited three goalkeepers have also arrived to begin preparations earnestly for the game against the North Africans.
The goalkeepers that have arrived are Daniel Akpeyi from South Africa as well as Ikechukwu Ezenwa, who plays for FC Ifeanyi Ubah.
Dele Alampasu, the third goalkeeper invited, is expected from Portugal on Tuesday.
Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, called up Captain Mikel John Obi, assistant captain, Ahmed Musa, and 22 others for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against the Fennecs of Algeria in Uyo.
Saturday’s game will be the Super Eagles’ 50th World Cup qualifying home 
In their previous 49 home matches, the Eagles had won 39 and drawn seven, while losing three.
Having won the first game away to Zambia, the Eagles are keen to keep the momentum in their quest for a sixth World Cup appearance in Russia.
