Iwobi, Ahmed Musa, Abdullahi Shehu report to Eagles camp


Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi, Al-Nassr’s Ahmed Musa and Bursapor’s Abdullahi Shehu have reported for international duty ahead of the Super Eagles workout at the Stephen Keshi Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr had given the three players an extended time before joining their international colleagues in Asaba for one reason or another.

The Super Eagles have been training in Asaba since Monday ahead of a pre-Africa Cup of Nations friendly against Zimbabwe.

Ex-Watford star Odion Ighalo and Udinese central defender William Troost-Ekong are still being expected in camp and could be omitted from the squad facing Zimbabwe on Saturday if they don’t participate in today’s workout.
