AFCON Qualifier: Osimhen arrives Super Eagles camp ahead Guinea Bissau encounter
Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen has arrived the team’s camp in Abuja ahead of Friday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against the Djurtus (Wild Dogs) of Guinea Bissau.
The match is scheduled to take place at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, in Abuja.
Eagles Media Officer, Babafemi Raji told the News Agency of Nigeria in a chat that Osimhen, who had a flight delay in Lagos, joined the team in Abuja after Tuesday’s evening training.
Raji said that the arrival of Osimhen brought the number of players in camp to 22, while Portugal-based defender Zaidu Sanusi was the only player still being expected and should be joining the team on Wednesday.
The Eagles have six points from their previous two matches, as they confront Guinea Bissau in a top-of-the-table fixture that will largely determine the swing of the pool.
They are favoured to qualify for the competition scheduled to hold in Cote d’Ivoire early next year.
