Ten players in Eagles camp

Only ten players have arrived in the camp of Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Monday night, six days to a crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The team is scheduled to for Antanarrivo on Wednesday but unfortunately could not train on Monday due to the non-availability of players.

John Mikel Obi, Victor Anichebe, Ahmed Musa, Fengor Ogude, Dele Adeleye, Joel Obi, Peter Utaka, Chinedu Obasi and Obinna Nsofor were the only arrivals in the camp of the team while the rest are expected on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Queens Park Rangers defender, Danny Shittu says he regrets his unavailability for the match.

Danny Shittu says that despite his injury, he is prepared to come down to Nigeria to support the Super Eagles as they prepare for their win or bust 2012 African Nations Cup qualifier.

The big defender suffered a dead leg in QPR's Carling Cup fixture against Rochdale on Tuesday, but was still prepared to come down and support his teammates

"I was going to still come and support the team but the coach (Siasia) said it was best I stayed and rested it," Shittu said.

"I got a dead leg in last Tuesday's game and it won’t recover on time so I won’t be able to participate in the coming games.

"I’m wishing the team the best of luck and for them to do Nigeria proud."

In his place, coach Samson Siasia has called up former Heartland defender Gege Soriola.
