Chelsea of England returnee, Kenneth Omeruo has confirmed that he will arrive at the Super Eagles’ camp in Uyo on Tuesday, having taken permission from the technical crew for a delayed arrival.
Omeruo, who played last season on loan at Kasimpasa of Turkey, said he is already 150 per cent fit and ready for the World Cup, but said he has to settle some personal matters before arriving at the national team’s camp, ahead of Monday’s friendly against DR Congo.

Omeruo further said the World Cup is very precious to him, having featured at the 2014 edition in Brazil, and he is more than ready to represent Nigeria in Russia this summer.
“I will be in camp on Tuesday. I have already spoken to the officials that I will be coming to camp on Tuesday and I hope to give my best when I get there.
“I am glad to be among the players invited by coach Gernot Rohr for the World Cup camping and I can tell you that I am 150% ready to represent my country at the tournament.
“For me, it is an honour to be invited and I have no choice than to give my best. This World Cup is my second and it is very precious to me because this is my year.
“I am looking forward to the World Cup as a player and as a Nigerian,” said Omeruo, who starred for the Golden Eaglets at Nigeria 2009 and Flying Eagles at Colombia 2011.
