Fulham’s Aina, West Brom’s Ajayi, Watford’s Ekong, arrive at Super Eagles camp for AFCON Qualifier


Ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches, four players named in the Super Eagles squad have arrived at the national team camp in Lagos for their two remaining matches against the Republic of Benin and Lesotho.

NFF has officially confirmed that Watford center back William Troost-Ekong, Fulham right-back Ola Aina and West Brom defender Semi Ajayi have arrived to face the two sides.

Ahmed Musa is the fourth player to show up in camp. The ex- Leicester City winger is currently unemployed after a proposed move to West Brom fell through last month.

Both Troost-Ekong and Aina were in action for their respective clubs on Friday and Saturday, although Ajayi has been inactive for over a month, with his last appearance coming against Burnley on February 20.

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has been hit by Covid-19 restrictions by French football clubs ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers as French-based duo Moses Simon and Samuel Kalu, including Spanish-based Kenneth Omeruo and Umar Sadiq have been blocked from traveling to link up with the squad.

The Three times African champions Nigeria, needs a win to book their ticket to the tournament in Cameroon.
