The ongoing nationwide workers’ strike has kept eight Super Eagles players away from camp in Uyo ahead of the world cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic.

It was gathered that they are in the country but unable to arrive in camp because of the ongoing Nigeria Labour Congress strike which has stalled domestic flights.

Fifteen players had a comprehensive session on Monday morning at the training pitch of the Godswill Akpabio stadium.

The training which lasted two hours included fitness and shooting drills, plus tactical sessions led by head coach Finidi George. 

Eight more players including Maduka Okoye, Semi Ajayi, Bright Osayi-Samuel, Calvin Bassey, Frank Onyeka, Alex Iwobi, Ademola Lookman and Paul Onuachu are yet to join the squad. 

There will be no training on Monday evening while the players will be allowed to rest and undergo a recovery session
