Calabar - Super Eagles officials have threatened to report German side, Schalke 04 to world soccer governing body, FIFA if Chinedu Ogbuke Obasi fails to come for the Nations Cup qualifiers against Congo and South Africa.

Nigeria will host Congo on Saturday in Calabar before traveling to Cape Town to face South Africa.

Team Administrator, Dayo Enebi Achor, who has been working round the clock to ensure that all invited players arrive on time for the games, revealed that the German side called to say they have submitted the international passport of Obasi for the coming Champions League hostilities, which may force the player to miss the games, as the passport will not be released on time.
