RFC Seraing of Belgium petit midfielder Sodiq Popoola is the only foreign base player yet to arrive the camp of the Nigeria U-23 according to checks done by Owngoalnigeria.com.

Popoola we gathered is having flight issues as regards traveling from Belgium to Nigeria but has all through the while kept the Samson Siasia lead technical crew abreast of his situation.

The fact that the technical crew knew his case was totally out of his control is partly the reason why he will be allowed into camp despite failing to beat Wednesday deadline for invited overseas players.

However it’s yet to be seen if he will be included in the squad as he could possibly not be in camp on Friday when the squad for the invitational tournament in South Korea is named as he is expected to arrive camp same day.

21 year old Popoola earned a call to the squad for the pre Olympic tournament after distinguishing himself in the 1-0 friendly
