Cape Verde vs Nigeria: Iwobi, Iheanacho, others leaves Super Eagles camp… See why



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.

There were 21 players on board, after the UK-based members of the squad returned to their respective bases.

This is because of the British government’s strict regulations on red list countries, which includes Cape Verde.

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.
