Emmanuel Dennis joined the other Super Eagles players in New Jersey on Tuesday morning as players in camp rose to twenty-one in number.
The in-demand Watford star had been suffering from a knock picked up from Watford’s last few league games.
He scored 10 goals and assisted 6 last season for the Hornets and contributed to about 50% of their goals as they failed in their relegation battle.
With Leeds, Aston Villa, West Ham and Galatasaray all reportedly interested in the former Club Brugge forward, he has put discussions on his future on hold as he joined the national team.
Dennis featured in March as Nigeria failed to pick a World Cup ticket against Ghana in Abuja.
He’s considered one of Nigeria’s best attackers in Europe after a beautiful individual season saw him shine in a struggling Watford side.
His club teammate, William Troost-Ekong and a host of others are in already in camp as Portuguese coach, Jose Peseiro put them through their paces.
The Super Eagles will face Ecuador on Friday morning while they’ll also face Sierra Leone and Mauritius in AFCON qualifiers.
