The Super Eagles camp in Uyo has taken shape as 11 more invited players arrive in the Akwa Ibom State capital ahead of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Crocodiles of Lesotho.

Moses Simon, Ademola Lookman, Taiwo Awoniyi, Ola Aina, Alex Iwobi, Calvin Bassey, Semi Ajayi, Joe Aribo, and Bright Osayi Samuel were welcomed by members of the state’s Football Normalization Committee at the Victor Attah International Airport before heading to the team’s camp at Four Points by Sheraton Ikot Ekpene.
