Cape Verde vs Nigeria: Full list of Super Eagles players who have left camp

Players and officials of the Super Eagles on Monday arrived on the island of Mindelo ahead of Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde.

The delegation touched down following a four-hour flight from Lagos.

Recall that Gernot Rohr, Super Eagles Technical Adviser, had handed out invitations to 30 players ahead of the opening rounds of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

However, due to the British government’s strict regulations on red list countries, which includes Cape Verde, there were 21 players on board after the UK-based members of the squad returned to their respective bases.

The affected players include defenders Olaoluwa Aina, William Ekong and Leon Balogun.

Forwards, Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi are also unavailable.

Midfielders, Oghenekaro Etebo, Wilfred Ndidi and Joseph Ayodele-Aribo have all left camp too.
