Professional Victor Osimhen, a forward for the Super Eagles, has arrived at the team’s Abuja training facility ahead of Friday’s AFCON qualifying match against Guinea Bissau’s Djurtus (Wild Dogs).
The game is set to take place at Abuja’s Moshood Abiola Stadium.
In a chat with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Eagles Media Officer Babafemi Raji said that Osimhen, who had a flight delay in Lagos, joined the team in Abuja after Tuesday’s evening training.
Raji stated that the arrival of Osimhen increased the number of players in camp to 22, with only Portugal-based defender Zaidu Sanusi still expected to join the team on Wednesday.
The Eagles have six points from their previous two games, and they face Guinea Bissau in a top-of-the-table clash that will largely determine the pool’s swing.
They are favoured to qualify for the competition scheduled to hold in Cote d’Ivoire early next year.
Ademola Olajire, Communication Director, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said the tickets are available at the football secretariat at the Package B of Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.
Olajire said tickets are also available at the Old Parade Ground, NFF’s former office at Wuse Zone 7 and other designated places which details will be announced on broadcast stations nationwide.
Egyptian referee Mahmoud Elbana will be in the centre, with his compatriots Youssef Elbosaty, Sami Halhal and Ahmed El-Ghandour to function as assistant referee 1, assistant referee 2 and fourth official respectively.
Prosper Harrison Addo from Ghana will be the match commissioner and his compatriot Kotey Alexander will be the referee assessor. (NAN)
