Ghana clash: Six players lands in Abuja Super Eagles training camp

On Monday, Super Eagles players began arriving at the team’s Abuja training camp in preparation for the vital 2022 FIFA World Cup play-off against Ghana’s Black Stars. 

The Super Eagles will meet the Black Stars in the first leg match on Friday in Kumasi. 

Babafemi Raji, the Super Eagles’ media officer, informed Newsmen that six players had arrived at the Abuja camp as of Monday morning, with more due later in the day. 

“For the time being, I can affirm that we have six guys in camp. However, more players are anticipated today (Monday),” he said.  

Vice-Captain and Watford defender William Troost-Ekong, Semi Ajayi (West Bromwich Albion), and Frank Onyeka (Brentford), all based in England, are among the early birds in camp, according to Raji. 

Leon Balogun (Rangers, Scotland), Ola Aina (Torino FC, Italy), and Odion Ighalo (Rangers, Scotland) are the others (Al Hilal, Saudi Arabia).  

The club hopes to begin training later on Monday when additional players arrive, he added, so the mood in camp is already upbeat. 

Raji promised that the Super Eagles will work around the clock to defeat their Ghanaian opponents and earn a ticket to Qatar 2022. 

Augustine Eguavoen, the Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, had previously released a 32-man provisional squad list for the epic clash.  

Before the first leg encounter in Kumasi on Friday, the list is anticipated to be whittled down to 24 players. 

The return leg match will be held on March 29 at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja, according to reports. 

The two leg winners will progress to the World Cup, which will be held in Qatar from Nov. 21 to Dec. 18.
