Brown Ideye and Victor Osimhen are among the early arrivals at the Super Eagles camp in Uyo as the national team get set for this weekend’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.

The game is scheduled for Saturday at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium.

The Nigeria Football Federation, through its official Twitter handle, also confirmed that Emmanuel Daniel, Jamiu Alimi, Imoh Ezekiel and Musa Mohammed were also in town for the Tanzania game.

However, Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, and a handful of players had flight delays in Lagos and are now expected to arrive in Uyo on Tuesday.

In a related development, in-form Chelsea star, Victor Moses, has also confirmed that he would be hitting the Super Eagles camp on Tuesday as the national team get set for their dead rubber AFCON 2017 qualifier against Tanzania.

Moses, who has scored two goals for the Blues in as many games, confessed that he was itching to reunite with his national teammates again.

“After a great three points on Saturday, now it’s time for international week and I’m looking forward seeing the lads tomorrow,” Moses tweeted on Monday

Moses is one of the attacking options in the 23-man list drawn by Nigeria’s Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr.

Others in the mix upfront include assistant captain, Ahmed Musa, leading Kelechi Iheanacho, Moses Simon, Imoh Ezekiel, Odion Ighalo, Brown Ideye and youngster Victor Osimhen.

As earlier stated, Rohr and the Super Eagles are using the game as rehearsal for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying series Matchday 1 clash with Zambia in Ndola in October.
