Other goalkeepers presently in camp ready to make the flight to Dar es Salaam tomorrow are Carl Ikeme of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sunshine Stars’ Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

The Super Eagles will also play a friendly match with Niger Repulic at the Adokiye Amasiemaka Stadium three days after the Tanzania encounter..
