Stephen Keshi, Super Eagles’ Head Coach, on Tuesday said players invited for the friendly against Scotland were expected to arrive the team’s camp latest on 27 May.
The match against Scotland will take place at the Craven Cottage in Fulham, England on 28 May and is the last international match the Super Eagles will play before the World Cup in Brazil.
Keshi said the deadline was given to the players to enable the team have one day to get its strategy for the match right.
“We are playing on May 28, and we all should be there on May 27 so that we can have at least a one-day training session before we play,” he said.
The coach said he was still working to prune the list of players to 30, although he has submitted 38 to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The list of players going to the World Cup must be submitted to FIFA on or before 10 May.
On the 38-player list, Keshi said players which made the provisional list were invited based on their performances in their various clubs and communication with the team’s handlers.
