2023 AFCONQ: Osimhen Arrives, 22 Players Now In Super Eagles’ Camp

Fenerbahce defender, Bright Osayi-Samuel, is the last Eagle to team up with the rest of the squad for Sunday’s 2023 AFCON qualifier against Sierra Leone in Liberia, as he joins the team for Wednesday’s training session at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos.

Osayi-Samuel’s arrival was announced on the Super Eagles Twitter handle. This brings the number of Eagles players in camp to 23.

The defender arrived at the Super Eagles camp last night and having missed two training sessions already, will join the rest of the team from Wednesday’s session before the team departs for Liberia via a chartered flight on Saturday morning.

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, who also missed the first training session on Monday, was part of Tuesday’s closed session, having arrived at the camp on Monday night.

Meanwhile, Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has expressed confidence in the four home-based players he invited to the national team for the Sierra Leone encounter.

In the 23-man squad released last week, Peseiro handed invitations to goalkeeping duo Victor Sochima of Rivers United and Enyimba’s Olorunleke Ojo just as Rivers United left-back Ebube Duru, who returned to the fold, while Bendel Insurance midfielder Divine Nwachukwu got a fresh call-up.

The four home-based stars are joined by 19 others from abroad as the Eagles prepare for the game at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos.
