Twenty seven domestic league players invited for the June 13 clash scheduled to hold in Kaduna have all reported in camp.

“I want all the foreign based players in camp on or before midnight on Wednesday, June 3,” Keshi told

“Apart from Aaron Samuel who is still involved with his club and has been granted special permission to report to camp after that deadline, I expect to have everybody in by June 3.”

“They are to report to the Bolton White Hotels and Apartments where their home based colleagues have been camped since May 21,” Keshi added.

The Super Eagles, made up of domestic league players, faced Spotlight of Katsina in a friendly match to open the new Karkanda Stadium in Katsina on Tuesday. They are expected back in Abuja on Wednesday while training will resume at the Abuja National Stadium on Thursday.
