Nigeria Super Eagles Stranded Ahead of World Cup Qualifiers Due to NLC Strike

In a setback for the Nigerian national football team, several key players find themselves stranded in Lagos, unable to connect their flights to Uyo, where the team's camp is located. The affected players include Maduka Okoye, Semi Ajayi, Bright Osayi-Samuel, Calvin Bassey, Frank Onyeka, Alex Iwobi, Ademola Lookman, and Paul Onuachu.

The timing couldn't be worse, as the Super Eagles are set to face South Africa and Benin Republic in crucial 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Friday and Monday respectively. However, the ongoing strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has disrupted travel plans, leaving these players unable to join their teammates in Uyo.

Despite efforts to resolve the situation, the players remain stranded, casting doubt over their availability for the upcoming matches. With time ticking away, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) faces a race against the clock to find alternative arrangements and ensure the squad is at full strength for these vital fixtures.

The NLC strike, which has paralyzed various sectors across the country, has now directly impacted Nigeria's football aspirations, highlighting the broader ramifications of such industrial actions. As fans anxiously await updates on the situation, hopes remain high that a resolution can be reached swiftly to avoid further disruption to the Super Eagles' campaign.
