The Super Eagles returned to Nigeria from the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations AFCON in Cameroon today Tuesday.
The team of players and officials returned via a chartered flight from Garoua where they played four matches.
They arrived at 1.10am at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, where they were received by officials of the Nigeria Football Federation NFF.
The NFF officials were led by their General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, accompanied by federation Executive Committee members Yusuf Ahmed and Shehu Dikko.
A large chunk of the players and officials came down from the aircraft, alongside a large number which comprised members of the Supporters Clubs and media personnel.
The aircraft later headed to Lagos, where it dropped off the few remaining players and officials, while the rest headed to the Transcorp Hilton where they were to be lodged.
Sanusi welcomed the players and praised them for their efforts in Cameroon, saying it was now time to look ahead to the task of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
