Twenty-two players consisting of 21 players named in the final squad and Edwin Igbo Okpave will be on the plane to Katowice.
Okpave is one of the four players included on Paul Aigbogun's standby list in case of injuries, but that list has not been announced to the public by the Nigeria Football Federation.
He impressed at the training camp but found himself down the pecking order of midfielders after Bournemouth starlet Nnamdi Ofoborh stole the show in the friendly clash against VfR Aalen U19s.
The Flying Eagles trained on Friday after a proposed friendly with Red Bull Leipzig was cancelled.
President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick, NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi and Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr visited the team on Friday morning.
