“To be honest it has affected the preparations because normally we are supposed to start training on Saturday and three days gone we have not been together,” Ndidi told TVC Nigeria.

“It has affected the team in some way where we are supposed to be knowing what we are actually doing, how to approach the game but we haven’t been able to do that.

“Few of them coming in today and the others coming in tomorrow it will be a great addition for us to prepare quicker.”

In addition, Kelechi Iheanacho, revealed little impact has been made in training since the cam opened.
