Super Eagles and CD Feirense of Portugal midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo has arrived the camp of the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead tonight’s friendly game against Senegal.

Etebo arrived London in the early hours of this morning, no thanks to visa hitch which delayed his departure from his base in Portugal.

His arrival will no doubt gladden the heart of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, but he may likely not hand the highly rated forward a start as he missed all of the training session of the team in the build up to the game.

Already English Premier League champions Leicester City have posted scouts to watch the 22 year old, who is heavily tipped to depart newly promoted CD Feirense this summer.

Leicester City scouts will most likely wait till Monday to see him in action against Burkina Faso, as Rohr is yet to make up his mind about playing the forward in tonight’s game.
