AFCON Qualifiers: Full house in Super Eagles camp as Iheanacho arrives

Published

on

Kelechi Iheanacho has arrived at the Eko Hotel and Suites camp of the Super Eagles ahead of their international outings this month.

Iheanacho, who bagged a brace for Leicester City on Sunday to knock Manchester United out of the FA Cup, had delayed due to some mix-up in his travel plans.

The 24-year-old finally arrived on Wednesday morning to join the rest of the 24-man squad of the Eagles as they continue preparations for the games.

The Gernot Rohr men will be taking on the Squirrels of Benin Republic on Saturday in a matchday five encounter of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

The team will be traveling to Cotonou on Friday, before linking up to the country’s capital – Porto-Novo, where the game will be played at the weekend.

Nigeria will also face the Crocodiles of Lesotho on 30 March – three days after the Benin clash – at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos for the final game of the qualifiers.

The Super Eagles are currently top of the Group L with eight points, needing just one point from the two matches left to secure their qualification for the Cameroon tournament billed for next year.
