Following Tuesday’s exit of the Super Eagles from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, members of the team have been leaving their Essentuki Camp Base in Russia in trickles.
Ademola Olajire, the Director of Communications of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that most of the players have left Russia for their respective bases.
“Instead of returning to Nigeria, the Super Eagles players have been returning to their respective bases one after the other, where they have since reunited with their families,’’ Olajire said.
The NFF Director said that the duo of Ahmed Musa and Bryan Idowu are staying put in Russia where they ply their trade for their respective clubs, CSKA Moscow and Amkar Perm.
According to him, players who have had their early exit from the camp include team captain Mike Obi, Odion Ighalo, Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho, Leon Balogun, Alex Iwobi, Kenneth Omeruo and Tyronne Ebuehi.
Olajire, however, said those remaining in the team’s camp include Daniel Akpeyi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Francis Uzoho, John Ogu, Chidozie Awaziem, Oghenekaro Etebo and Simeon Nwankwo.
However, NAN reports that the team’s Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, had stayed back in the team’s Essentuki camp to mark his 65th birthday anniversary on Thursday.
Toyin Ibitoye, the team’s Media Officer, also said the coaching staff and other backroom staff would depart Russia on Friday and arrive in Abuja on Saturday.
The Eagles had failed to reach the competition’s second round after a 1-2 loss to Argentina in their last Group D game played at St. Petersburg.
