Olayinka in Camp; Moses Simon and Henry Onyekuru on the way


The Super Eagles camp is slowly swirling with the arrival of Czech Republic based versatile forward Peter Olayinka. France based diminutive winger Moses Simon and Greece based dashing dribbler Henry Onyekuru are said to be arriving shortly.


Yesterday, Chidozie Awaziem arrived which now shoots the number of players in the camp to 8, which would increase to 10 after the arrival of Simon and Onyekuru later on.


The Super Eagles list was recently rejigged following the unavailability of a number of players due to illness, injuries and reluctance of their club to release them. As a result, fan-favourite Ebuehi, exciting Olayinka, dribbler Onyekuru and versatile Semi Ajayi were handed late call ups.


These players apparently accepted their late invitations "enthusiastically" with Olayinka already in camp.


The Super Eagles, who are unlikely to play any meaty friendly match prior to the tournament commencement, will lock horns with Mo Salah's Egypt on January 11.
