2022 World Cup Qualifiers: Kaizer Chiefs’ Akpeyi leads early arrivals in Nigeria camp for Central African Republic games


The Nigeria national team camp is beginning to fill up ahead of October’s 2022 Fifa World Cup qualification matches against the Central African Republic.

The Super Eagles continue their quest for a ticket to Qatar against the Wild Beasts on October 7 before squaring up against them on their home ground three days later.

Kaizer Chiefs’ Daniel Akpeyi, CSKA Moscow’s Chidera Ejuke as well as Alanyaspor FC’s Chidozie Awaziem are the early birds at the Super Eagles camp.

More players are expected in camp later on Monday, as Gernot Rohr’s squad starts preparations for the fixtures on Tuesday.

Following victories over Liberia and Cape Verde, Nigeria lead Group C with six points and they would be hoping to continue with their perfect start against Raoul Savoy’s men.

Unfortunately, Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi and Watford star Peter Etebo will play no part due to injury setbacks.

Victory in both games will take Nigeria a step closer to the all-important knockout rounds that will produce Africa’s five flagbearers for Qatar.
