Lover Boys: Echiejile, Musa To Join Eagles in Uyo
Three players are yet to hit the Super Eagles camp in Uyo and it is not surprising that the ‘missing ones’ include the recently wedded duo of Elderson Echiejile and Ahmed Musa.
Though the duo have said they are shelving their honeymoon plans for pending national team assignments, it is not impossible that they are still enjoying the company of their new spouses.
That said, Musa and Echiejile alongside Kenneth Omeruo are expected to join the Eagles in Uyo on Tuesday as the Nigeria national team go full throttle in their preparations for their curtain raiser in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Twenty-One players arrived in Uyo on Monday. While there was no on the pitch training physical and tactically exercises were done by the players in the oil-rich city.
The game against South Africa comes up on Saturday at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo. Kickoff time is 5pm. #pepperdem
