“Our players will start arriving in the camp between Friday and Sunday immediately they finish playing their league games this weekend.

“We will be playing our first game on Oct. 9, so, by Oct. 6, every player is supposed to be in camp in Austria.

“We will have just two days to prepare and we know Algeria is a strong force in football,” Ibitoye said.

The Super Eagles Coordinator, Patrick Pascal who also spoke to NAN, said the Coronavirus pandemic had affected football so much and as such cannot predict what would happen in Austria.

Pascal, however, assured Nigerian fans that the team would live up to the expectations during both matches. (NAN)
