The Super Eagles camp for the 2023 Africa Cup qualifying game against São Tomé and Príncipe will open in Uyo on Wednesday, The PUNCH reports.
The Eagles play the Selecao at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Sunday, September 10, in a dead rubber game.
Jose Peseiro’s side head into the game with their place at the AFCON in Ivory Coast next year already guaranteed with 12 points after beating Sierra Leone 3-2 in June.
Eagles coach, Peseiro had on Sunday named a 23-man squad for the encounter but had Alex Iwobi pull out due to injury.
In a chat with The PUNCH, Eagles media officer, Babafemi Raji, confirmed that the players were expected to resume camp on Wednesday.
“The camp opens on Wednesday and will be expecting most of the players in camp on that day as they’ve been able to travel on Monday and Tuesday. We are expecting a full house from day one. We will keep updating the media about the team’s progress as well as plans for the pre-match conference.”
