Super Eagles players in training

Super Eagles stars appear to be in relaxed mood ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Algeria.

Having already qualified for the global showpiece, the three-time African champions aren’t sweating over the clash with the Desert Foxes on Friday.

The Eagles had so much time that some of them even posed for photographs in their base in Rabat, Morocco.

The first set was led by Arsenal star, Alex Iwobi alongside close allies, Ola Aina and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Also included was the defensive pair of William Troost-Ekong and Leon Balogun.

The other group had Wilfred Ndidi reunite with his former youth international teammate, Chidiebere Nwakali as well as Ahmed Musa, Shehu Abdullahi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

According to reports, around 20 Eagles are already in camp as on Tuesday evening.

Players still expected are skipper Mikel Obi, newbie Francis Uzoho and fellow goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi.

“We have everybody apart from the trio of Captain John Obi Mikel, South Africa-based Daniel Akpeyi and new invitee, Francis Uzoho, who are all expected,” Super Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, told AOIFootball on Tuesday.

“So, I can confirm that 20 players are in camp already and the team is in high spirit.

“We are happy that the qualification to the World Cup was sealed before now because the injury to key players would have been a big worry to the coach and Nigerians at large.”

Aside from the clash with Algeria, Nigeria will also face two-time world champions, Argentina in Russia.
