Olympiacos striker, Henry Onyekuru, has arrived at the Super Eagles of Nigeria’s camp in Abuja to swell the number of players in camp to nine.

Onyekuru was at the last Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in Egypt but was not originally included in the 28-man list for this finals.

The Greece-based player was only added to the list of players for the Championship in Cameroon on Friday following the unavailability of Napoli hit-man, Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday ahead of his return to Italy for a medical assessment that would have determined his availability or not for the AFCON championship.

More players are expected to join from Monday as the Augustine Eguavoen’s side work on strategies ahead of the AFCON that will commence on 9th January in Cameroon.

According to an update from the Nigeria Football Federation’s media team, the players in camp as of Saturday’s afternoon now are Henry Onyekuru (Olympiacos, Greece), Peter Olayinka (Slavia Praha, Czech Republic), Chidozie Awaziem (Alayanspor, Turkey), Chidera Ejuke (CSKA Moscow, Russia), Daniel Akpeyi (Kaizer Chiefs, South Africa), Sadiq Umar (UD Almeria, Spain), Olisa Ndah (Orlando Pirates, South Africa), John Noble (Enyimba FC) and Taiwo Awoniyi (Union Berlin, Germany).
