Troost Ekong, Alex Iwobi, Ola Aina, Tyronne Ebuehi, Brian Idowu and Leon Balogun were the early birds when the camp opened on Monday.

They were joined later in the day by Francis Uzoho, Elderson Echiejile, Stephen Eze, Joel Obi, Shehu Abdullahi, John Ogu, Moses Simon and  Kenneth Omeruo.

Odion Ighalo, Ogenyi Onazi, Uche Agbo and Ahmed Musa are the latest arrivals, as preparation hits top gear ahead of the match starting 8.45 pm.

The Super Eagles will take on Serbia at The Hive Stadium, London four days later, as part of a series of games lined up by Nigeria Football Federation to prepare the team for Russia 2018 World Cup finals in June.
