Super Eagles camp update: Ndidi, Boniface, and 13 others in training

The Super Eagles’ camp in Uyo is lively as they prepare for Friday’s crucial FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifier against South Africa. On Sunday, June 2, 2024, at least 15 players participated in training sessions at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.

This match against Bafana Bafana is key for Nigeria’s World Cup qualification hopes and so new coach Finidi George aims to get the Super Eagles back on track after they earned only two points from their first two matches under former coach Jose Peseiro.

Promise Efoghe, the new Team Media Officer (TMO) of the Super Eagles, reported that 13 players, including Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, trained in the first session. They were joined by Sadiq Ismael (Remo Stars), Kenneth Igboke (Enugu Rangers), and Ojo Olorunleke (Enyimba) from the StarTimes/Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL). Chidozie Awaziem and Alhassan Yusuf joined the team during the second session in the evening.

Efoghe, who recently replaced Babafemi Raji as the senior national team’s spokesman, added that eight more players are expected. Among them is Atalanta’s Europa League hero Ademola Lookman, who scored his 11th Serie A goal in a recent 3-2 loss to Fiorentina.
