Nigeria interim manager Augustine Eguavoen is expected to have a full house as players based in Europe will be arriving in camp after this weekend’s league matches.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) issued a directive to allow European clubs to release players after January 3.

The Super Eagles opened camp in Abuja last week with only 10 players reporting to camp so far.

Players invited to join the squad from England, France, Italy, Portugal, Netherlands, Turkey and Spain will join the team on Monday before they fly out to Cameroon.

The stars in camp are Moses Simon (FC Nantes, France), Francis Uzoho (AC Omonia, Cyprus), 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).

Coach Eguavoen will have a full house on Monday to continue with preparations with the team before they fly out to Cameroon.

Nigeria is in Group D alongside Egypt, Sudan and Guinea Bissau.

The Super Eagles will face North African side Egypt in the opening group D game in Garuoa on January 11.
