Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi says the team hasn’t been able to make the best use of their training camp in Uyo ahead of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic, no thanks to the late arrival of some members of the 23-man squad.

The Super Eagles camp opened in Uyo last Friday but only 22 players were in camp as of Wednesday afternoon, with Udinese goalkeeper Maduka Okoye still expected to complete the squad.

Atalanta’s Europa League hero Ademola Lookman and Alex Iwobi also arrived at the team’s hotel on Wednesday.

Five other players; Semi Ajayi, Bright Osayi-Samuel, Calvin Bassey, midfielder Frank Onyeka and forward Paul Onuachu landed in Uyo in a private jet on Tuesday after their proposed arrival on Monday was botched by the nationwide strike embarked upon by the Nigeria Labour Congress, which crippled flight operations.
