Iwobi, Iheanacho, others ruled out of Cape Verde World Cup qualifiers clash

The Super Eagles will be without their England-based stars for the qualification match against the Blue Sharks on Tuesday

Alex Iwobi, William Troost-Ekong, Peter Etebo, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho will be absent for Nigeria’s 2022 Fifa World Cup qualification versus Cape Verde.

The quintet will hold sway when the Super Eagles take on Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Friday evening but will fly back to England immediately.

Giving an update on his players in a zoom conference monitored by Goal, coach Gernot Rohr made this known less than 24 hours prior to their crunch fixture against Peter Butler’s Lone Star.

Notwithstanding, he stated that he will parade another set of players against the Blue Sharks in Mindelo.

“There are only two new players in camp: Malmo FF’s Innocent Bonke and Bologna’s Kingsley Michael. These players did very well during training,” the German tactician said.
