Already in camp are the 23-man squad and Nigeria’s Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr, and his technical assistants but a training programme scheduled for the National Stadium Main Bowl was moved to one of the training pitches due to a church programme that took place at the venue.

Report has it that the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, was not aware that the ministry of sports rented out the stadium mainbowl to a church.

Meanwhile the Super Eagles will on Wednesday play against premier league side, Plateau United, in a friendly match before departing on board a chartered flight for the World Cup qualifier early Saturday morning.
The Nigeria/Zambia match will kick-off 1.30pm Nigerian time on Sunday.
