Full House As Musa And Onuachu Arrive At Super Eagles Camp.
Al Nassr’s Ahmed Musa and Genk’s Paul Onuachu have arrived in Nigeria’s camp ahead of this week’s international friendlies against Algeriaand Tunisia.
The duo are the last of the players to arrive at the team’s base in Austriaas Gernot Rohr now has his players available for training.
Onuachu was handed a late call-up after Victor Osimhen of Napoliwas excused from the Desert Foxes and Carthage Eagles’ games because of travel restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
*After seven seasons at FC Midtjylland, the gangling striker joined the Belgian elite division outfit in 2019. This season, he has been impressive for Jess Thorup’s men having scored seven goals in seven games in the 2020-21 campaign.
For Musa, who naturally takes over the mantle of leadership from John Obi Mikel, he is expected to add attacking bite to the squad in the games that will serve as build-up for November’s double-header Africa Cup of Nationsqualifier against Sierra Leone.
This term, he is yet to feature for Rui Vitoria’s Najd’s Knight as speculation about him leaving the King Fahd Stadium, Riyadh became intense.
Four days after taking on the reigning African champions, Rohr’s team will face the Carthage Eagles at Jacques Lehmans Arena.
Since defeating Lesotho 4-2 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at Maseru’s Setsoto Stadium on November 17, 2019, Nigeria are yet to play a match in 2020 owing to the Covid-19 outbreak.
