Home Eagles Finally Get Belgian Visas As Oliseh Picks Two

The Belgian embassy has finally issued entry visas to the six home-based players picked for Nigeria's friendlies against Congo and Cameroun, the official Twitter account of the Super Eagles has announced.

The visas were supposed to have been issued last Friday so that the players could travel last Sunday for the matches against DR Congo and Cameroon billed for Thursday and this Sunday.

But the visas were delayed and coach Sunday Oliseh instructed the six players involved to join the Port Harcourt camp for their CHAN preparations.
But coach Oliseh has now picked  two of those players for the Belgiun games. They are Sharks FC left-back Chima Akas and Abia Warriors defender Austin Oboroakpo. 

The two who will travel with the delegation on Thursday will play no part in Thursday's game against the Leopards of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

"Belgian embassy finally give visas to domestic based players who are to join the team in Belgium," the Super Eagles tweet said.

"But Coach Oliseh has opted for only two of them, Chima Akas (Sharks FC), Austin Oboroakpo (Abia Warriors). 

"Other officials who will travel include: Goal Keepers trainer Alloy Agu, Dr. Ibrahim Gyaran, Chidi Ngoka, NFF DGS Emmanuel Ikpeme and Media Manager Toyin Ibitoye."
 
The Thursday game which is the first between both countries’ senior teams in five-and-half-years will kick off at 7pm at the VISE Stadium.
