The team arrived Garoua Wednesday as they look set to win their 4th Africa Cup of Nations Title.
A total of 25 players from the invited 28 arrived in Cameroon with two defenders, Jamilu Collins and Tyrone Ebuehi as well as striker, Odion Jude Ighalo yet to link up with the team.
Ahead of their departure, the players expressed optimism that they would do the country proud in the tournament.
