He said, “Gernot Rohr will arrive from Egypt, where he went to support the national U-23 team’s preparation for the African U-23 Nations Cup. “The players will start arriving from Saturday after this weekend’s matches in Europe. Many of them are expected in on Sunday, but the rest will come in on Monday.

“Already, the NFF and the Akwa Ibom State government have made arrangements for the Eagles’ stay in Uyo.” Meanwhile, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has picked Senegalese official Issa Sy as referee for next week’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between Nigeria and Benin Republic in Uyo.Sy will be assisted by compatriots Nouha Bangoura (assistant referee 1), El Hadji Abdoul Aziz Gueye (assistant referee 2) and Fatou Thioune (fourth official) at the encounter scheduled for the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, from 5pm.

Nigeria will welcome back skipper Ahmed Musa from injury, with defenders Kenneth Omeruo, Abdullahi Shehu and Bryan Idowu, as well as midfielder Mikel Agu and forward Samuel Kalu also returning.
