World Cup Qualifiers: Super Eagles Camp Opens, Lesotho Arrive


November 14, 2023

The camp of the Super Eagles in Uyo has opened ahead of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zimbabwe as the invited players begin to troop in on the back of impressive performances for their respective clubs.

Meanwhile, Boavista’s left-back Bruno Onyemaechi faces uncertainty in Nigeria’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign as he picked up an injury during Boavista’s 3-1 loss to Farense on Sunday.

Jamilu Collins of Cardiff City stands as the alternative left-back option for the squad, but Porto defender Zaidu Sanusi can be handed a late call-up as a replacement.

Also Bendel Insurance goalkeeper Amas Obasogie will take the place of Maduka Okoye in Super Eagles’ squad after Okoye pulled out of the games.

Nigeria will take on Lesotho on Thursday, November 16 in their first game of the series at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo before travelling to Rwanda for the Zimbabwe clash on November 19.
