As at midday on Monday, March 21 2011 only four players have turned up at the camp of Nigeria’s Men National Team, the Super Eagles.

The four players, Sunday Rotimi (Dolphins), Julius Ubido (Heartland), Chibuzor Okonkwo (Heartland) and Ekigho Ehiosun (Warri Wolves) all play in the domestic League but chief media officer of the Nigeria Football Federation, Ademola Olajire says there is really no cause for alarm.

Olajire told that the camp opened on Monday morning and the players based in Europe are expected to arrive later in the day.

“Right now there are just four players in camp and they are the one that play in the home league,” Olajire told

“The camp opened today (Monday) so you would expect them to come in later so I believe they will actually start full training tomorrow (Tuesday),” Olajire said.

Captain of the team, Joseph Yobo, Osaze Odemwingie (pictured above), Obafemi Martins, Obinna Nsofor, Dele Adeleye are expected to arrive on Monday night.

Others players who promised Monday arrival are Adefemi Olubayo, Ahmed Musa, Joel Obi, and Nnamdi Oduamadi.

Head coach of the side has already given a Tuesday deadline for players to arrive.
The Eagles play against Ethiopia in a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match in Abuja on Sunday.
