Keshi explained that camping for the home-based players would be opened in time for his preparations to begin in earnest.

“We need to start camping next month because time is not on our side since the fixtures for the qualifiers have been released by CAF,” Keshi said.

“We will definitely start off with the players based here in Nigeria and move on until the required time the overseas clubs can release our players for us.

“The camp is expected to kick off middle of May since we will play our first qualifying match on June 13. The players are expected in camp after their league matches on Saturday, May 16. So we should expect them to be available on Sunday, May 17,” said Keshi.

Keshi is expected to submit his programme to the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation this week
