The quintet of defenders Semi Ajayi, Bright Osayi-Samuel, Calvin Bassey, midfielder Frank Onyeka, and forward Paul Onuachu are already in the country.


They are on their way to Uyo to join fifteen other players already on the ground, as the Super Eagles’ preparations for Friday’s 2026 FIFA African World Cup qualifying match against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana swing into new gear.


A total of 15 players trained on Monday morning in Uyo, with Head Coach Finidi George telling the players afterward that the three points at stake in Friday’s encounter must end up in Nigeria’s kitty.


While the quintet (three in Abuja and two in Lagos) are being expected at the team’s Ibom Hotel and Resorts, the trio of midfielders, Alex Iwobi, goalkeeper Maduka Okoye, and forward Ademola Lookman are expected to arrive in the country on Tuesday.  


There was no training session on Monday evening, as the players get countenance intensive sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, hopefully with a full house.


The delegation of Bafana Bafana is expected to arrive in Nigeria on Wednesday, with the team already booked into Four Points By Sheraton Hotel in Ikot-Ekpene.
