The Super Eagles players and officials arrived in Garoua, venue of their Group D matches of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, last Wednesday night.

The players, under the tutelage of Augustine Eguavoen, defeated Coton Sports Garoua in a friendly on Friday.

Interim Nigeria boss Eguavoen addressed the Media in a World Press Conference ahead of the game against Egypt.

The 1994 Africa Cup of Nations winning right-back spoke about the likely availability of Paderborn’s Jamilu Collins and recently appointed manager of the team, José Vítor dos Santos Peseiro.

“Hopefully Jamilu Collins should be arriving tonight (Monday). We had some issues on his arrival and we have sorted it out,” the former Torpedo Moscow star said at the Press Conference attended by on Monday in Garoua.

“We are in touch. It’s not a problem. Mind you I am the Technical Director of Nigeria Football Federation, by extension and right I am his (Peseiro’s) boss.

“So collaboration is very good, because whatever we do here is to make it a soft landing and platform to operate.

“We want to be at the next World Cup,” he enthused.

“There is need to make everything comfortable and smooth for him. When Peseiro resumes, he can now add his own ideas.

The Super Eagles will kickstart their AFCON campaign against Egypt at Estádio Roumde Adjia on Tuesday night.
