The Super Eagles of Nigeria have opened camping ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Libya, and are set to begin training on Tuesday.
This much was revealed via the Twitter handle of the national team, which also stated that the training sessions of Wednesday and Thursday will be open to the public.
