Super Eagles await Okoye before first practice for RCA’s doubles program
The Super Eagles are ready for their first training session at Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos on Tuesday night ahead of their next World Cup qualifying games against the Central African Republic.
According to updates from the Eagles official Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon, only one more player is expected on the 23-man roster called for the doubles program.
Maduka Okoye who is the first choice goalkeeper is the only one still expected at the time of filing this report.
The Super Eagles matches against the RCA will take place at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos on Thursday October 7 with the Matchday 4 match in Douala, Cameroon (currently the “home” of the Central African Republic national teams) on Sunday October 10. .
The Eagles have the maximum six points in their first two games against Liberia in Lagos and against Cape Verde in Mindelo, the Eagles are aiming for another six points against the Central Africans.
Despite making some forced changes due to injury, coach Genort Rohr has largely kept faith in the same group of players who have ensured Nigeria’s quest for a seventh Mundial appearance is well underway.
Victory in Thursday’s and Saturday’s matches will virtually guarantee the Super Eagles’ progress to the all-important round of 16 slated for March 2022, which will produce the five African standard bearers in Qatar.
The 22 players of the Camp
Ejuke Chidera, Daniel Akpeyi, Onuachu Paul, Samuel Kalu, Kevin Akpoguma, Jamilu Collins, Innocent Bonke, Chidozie Awaziem, Taiwo Awoniyi, William Ekong, Frank Onyeka, Leon Balogun, Joseph Aribo, Calvin Bassey, Ola Aina, Ahmed Musahi, Shehu Abdull , Francis Uzoho, Kenneth Omeruo, Victor Osimhen, Kelechi Iheanacho and Simon Moses.
