18 players have arrived Super Eagles camp in Dnipro ahead of the international friendly match against Ukraine on Tuesday.

Victor Osimhen, Alex Iwobi and Samuel Chukwueze are a number of stars that have already joined the preparations for the game against Andriy Shevchenko's men.

An initial squad of 23 players had been invited by Nigetia's coach, Gernot Rohr for the game but a few players have withdrawn from the game due for various reasons.

Captain of the side, Ahmed Musa is one of the players to have withdrawn from the game having failed to recover on time from an injury while Leicester City and Benfica's Tyrone Ebuehi picked up late injuries for their clubs.

Former Chelsea defender, now with Leganes in Spain, Kenneth Omeruo and new Monaco signing, Henry Onyekuru have also excused themselves from the game due to resident and work permit issues.

Although, Bordeaux's Josh Maja, Club Brugge's Dennis Bonaventure, Lokomotiv Moscow's Brian Idowu and PAOK midfielder Anderson Esiti received late call-ups as replacements for those players, they have made their way to Dnipro in time.

Returning Leicester player, Kelechi Iheanacho, Torino's Ola Aina, West Brom's Oluwasemilogo Ajayi and Chigozie Awaziem are the players yet to arrive camp.
