Musa, Iheanacho, Etebo Arrive For AFCON March Against Sierra Leone

Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa, Kelechi Iheanacho and Oghenekaro Etebo were among the early arrivals at the team’s camp in Eterno Hotel in Benin City.

The Super Eagles will take on the Leone Stars at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on Nov. 13 in a first of two qualifying matches for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The team will then fly to Freetown for the return game on Nov. 17 at the Siaka Stevens Stadium.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) confirmed their arrivals on the team’s official Twitter handle on Monday.

The players affected include Daniel Akpeyi, Leon Balogun, Joe Aribo, Jamilu Collins, Semi Ajayi, Zaidu Sanusi, Kevin Akpoguma, Frank Onyeka, Emmanuel Dennis, Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Osimhen and Chidera Ejuke.

The German football tactician said he was, however, hopeful of having the full complement of the 24 players called up by Tuesday.

According to the tweet by NFF, Musa who flew into the country from Saudi Arabia, where he recently parted ways with Al Nassr was a surprise visitor at the camp of the Flying Eagles in Abuja earlier on Monday.

“He charged the team to go do the nation proud at the WAFU 2020 Regional Cup before connecting another flight to Benin.”
