Mikel Obi is among the Super Eagles players that have arrived Calabar for the November 16 World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia’s Walya Antelopes at the U.J. Esuene Stadium.
Super Eagles Media Officer, Mr. Ben Alaiya, said this on Tuesday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Calabar.
According to him, flight hitches have delayed some of the invited players who are already in Nigeria from arriving in the Calabar camp of the Super Eagles.
He, however, said alternative arrangements were being made to enable the players to connect flights to Calabar from Lagos and Abuja.
Alaya said, “The players, who are already in the camp, include Mikel Obi, Bright Dike, John Ogu, and James Okwuosa. All the home-based players are in camp.
“It is a normal process that players would not all arrive in the camp at the same time, but arrangements are in place to welcome the Super Eagles today (Tuesday).
“There is no cause for alarm as all the players will arrive in camp for the first training session at 4pm today, at the U. J Esuene Stadium.
“There is no closing time yet for camping, as some of the players are still being expected for the team to be in full preparation for the match on Saturday.”
