- Super Eagles camp in Lagos is already bubbling ahead of their AFCON qualifying matches
- All invited players have arrived Eko Hotel where the team is camped for final preparation
- Music icon and ‘Ponmile’ crooner Reminisce was pictured with defender Leon Balogun and Onyekuru
Top Nigerian act Remilekun Abdulkalid Safaru famously known as 'Reminisce' was pictured at the Eko Hotel in Lagos where the Super Eagles are camping for their AFCON qualifiers.
The Nigerian team will take on Squirrels of Benin on Saturday, March 27 in Porto Novo, before returning to the Teslim Balogun in Lagos to take on Lesotho on March 30.
The Super Eagles currently sit atop of the Group L table with eight points from four matches - just one point better than their next foe ahead showdown.
The three-time Africa kings were only able to pick two points from their last two outings against Sierra Leone, thereby, delaying their qualification for the competition.
Having gone four goals up in the first half of their encounter in Benin, they ended up drawing the game 4-4 in November with a similar scenario repeating itself in Freetown a few days later.
This will be the first time in a decade the Super Eagles will play any game in Lagos, with their last against Sierra Leone ending 2-1 in favour of the hosts in 2011.
As at the time of filing this report, all invited players are already in camp including Leicester City hero Kelechi Iheanacho.
And Nigerian music icon Reminisce was at the team-camp to inspire them to victory as he took to his Twitter handle to reveal how it all went. He tweeted:
"Spent the morning at the Super Eagles camp. I also had a chat with a few of the lads. Stay tuned for exclusive "Super Eagles" content via @TheAgendaOnAir."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Squirrels of Benin coach Michel Dussuyer has stated that his side will go all out for the maximum points.
“We have respect for Nigeria but we also have out assets. We will approach the game with a lot of seriousness and determination.
“We know what we have to do. On Saturday our ambition is to win. It will not be an easy task but we have hopes.”
