Super Eagles players will open camp on Monday, August 29, in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State ahead of Saturday’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Tanzania.
None of the invited players has arrived at the Le Meridien Hotel, according to the Nigeria Football Federation on their official website.
The reverse fixture between Tanzania and Nigeria in Dar es Salam ended 0-0.
A win for either side will not have any effect in the group standing as Egypt have already picked the sole ticket for next year’s AFCON in Gabon.
Rio 2016 Olympics bronze medal winner, Emmanuel Daniel, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Jamiu Alimi are also expected in Uyo on Monday alongside a number of overseas-based players, including defender William Troost-Ekong and forward Odion Ighalo.
Team captain Mikel Obi, is expected to arrive at the team’s camp on Tuesday, while new Eagles handler Gernot Rohr, will also be in Uyo on Monday.
