Omeruo, Balogun, Iheanacho, Iwobi land in Austria for Super Eagles friendlies

DEFENDERS Kenneth Omeruo, Leon Balogun and William Troost-Ekong all arrived at Hotel die Zeit an der Glan camp of the Super Eagles on Monday ahead of Nigeria’s international friendly matches against African champions Algeria and Tunisia.

Forwards Samuel Kalu and Chidera Ejuke and goalkeeper Mathew Yakubu were had arrived earlier in the day to kick off camping.
 Semi Ajayi and Ola Aina, as well as forward Kelechi Iheanacho also landed in Austria Monday afternoon with Dele Alampasu, Jamilu Collins, Cyril Dessers and Alex Iwobi. The other invited players are expected in camp by Monday night.

Also, as he awaits the approval of his international switch to the Super Eagles of Nigeria, former Germany U-20 captain Kevin Akpoguma is at the team’s hotel in Austria to familiarise with the Nigeria set-up and bond with the other players.

The Super Eagles face Algeria’s Fennecs at the Jacques Lemans Arena on Friday before taking on 2004 African champions Tunisia at the same venue on Tuesday next week.

Coach Gernot Rohr would have to do without three of his initial invitees, with Turkey-based midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo suffering a knock on Sunday, following earlier injury to Wilfred Ndidi and permission granted to Napoli forward Victor Osimhen to sit out the matches.

It is the first gathering of the Super Eagles this year, with the coronavirus pandemic shutting down football globally since the month of March. The October friendlies will be followed by a double-header of 2022 AFCON qualifying gamed against Sierra Leone in November.

Match organisers Eurodata Sport have clarified that no fan will be allowed inside the stadium for any of the two matches, in conformity with coronavirus guidelines.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Football Federation has called on television stations interested in bringing the matches live to the homes of Nigerians to immediately contact the Federation on the modalities to achieve this. Interested stations can contact the NFF’s Assistant Director/Head of Marketing, Alizor Chuks on 08036018023. Both matches will kick off at 8.30pm Austria time (9.30pm Nigeria time).
