    Nigeria's Super Eagles face The lions of Cameroon on the 4th of June, 8 pm in London.

    The friendly match is organized to ensure the Super Eagles side, coached by German tactician, Gernot Rohr is in shape for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde in September.

    This will be the Super Eagles' third match in 2021 after their two Africa Cup of Nations matches against the Benin Republic and Lesotho earlier. The Super Eagles have seen victory from the two matches and will look to continue on this ride against Cameroon in Wiener Neustadt, Austria.

    In preparation for the match, 19 players have reported to the Eagles camp, but there has been news that some of the players are not happy as their allowances have not been paid up to date. Some players even withdraw and don't want to participate in the two-legged friendly match.

    18 players trained in the Austrian capital, Vienna on Monday. These include Maduka Okoye, Francis Uzoho, John Noble, William Troost-Ekong, Alex Iwobi, Shehu Abdullahi, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Valentine Ozornwafor, Chidozie Awaziem, Jamilu Collins, Oghenekaro Etebo, Anayo Iwuala, Terem Moffi, Peter Olayinka, and Samsom Tijani.

    The Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa is yet to report to camp, as of the time of this report. The Kano Pillars forward is expected to join the team today, likewise, Genk sensational striker, Paul Onuachu, who has been on form, with his 33 goals in the Belgian league.

    Kenneth Omeruo and Umar Sadiq have already withdrawn from the team, while the likes of Ola Aina, Kevin Akpoguma, Victor Osimhen, Zaidu Sanusi, Tyronne Ebuehi, Semi Ajayi, and Simy Nwankwo have opted out, due to injury.

    Reports have it that the Nigeria Football Federation is owing the players outstanding allowances from 2019, and Rohr is been owed seven months' wages.
