“The coach has visited and solicited for our release. The Federation has followed will the invitation letters. It’s now up to me and my colleagues to explain to our coaches what this qualification means to us and our country.” Haruna declared.

“Even the team secretary has copied the invitations to our email boxes, so if the club claims not to see the official invitation; we can print ours and take to the coach”. He added.

On his possible arrival to camp, the former PSG of France midfielder stated that” I cannot say what date I will arrive but I am confident I will be in Accra before the weekend”.

The 16 invited foreign-based players are expected to report to camp on or before midnight of 12th of November.

According to team’s media officer, Arafat Aliu, Atletico Madrid striker Olaitun Otubanjo is expected to hit camp on Thursday while the likes of Nosa Igbiebor, Ekigho Ehiosun and Nnamdi Oduamadi joins after their outing with the Super Eagles.
