The senior national team in Nigeria won’t be spending the number of days they were expected to spend in the camp in France later in the month, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.

Sources at the glass house confirmed to our editorial desk that the team is due back in Nigeria on the 28th of May, two days after the friendly game against Corsica as against the earlier proposed return date of 1st of June.

No reason was given for the sudden cut in the number of days the team will be spending in their camp in Paris, but it will for now bring to an end the debate surrounding the proposed tie against Togo.

The game will no longer hold as the proposed date of 1st of June isn’t feasible anymore following the recent cut in the days the team will spend in France.

Players and officials of the Super Eagles will depart Nigeria latest Monday May 22nd, for France ‎. Team secretary Anchor Enebi who picked up his France Visa few days ago, said other squad members will secure their visa before Friday this week ahead of their departure on Monday.
