This is coming after being on 24hrs pressure to deliver a complete team and ahead of Monday deadline.
The team will depart for Egypt, 3pm today but Nigerians are surprised at the drop of two players especially the fore – Kelechi Iheanacho and Semi Ajayi.
Kelechi Iheanacho is considered, “one of the most reliable players in Gernot Rohr’s first few games.” As he “was one of the most promising youngster destined for greatness.”
But Edafe Matthew thinks the Super Eagles coach have done the right thing. Saying, “Gernot Rohr just jumped into my good books with the dropping of Kelechi Iheanacho from the AFCON squad to Egypt. Before someone says beef, there is no beef here on my plate, only vegetables. Players need to feel that selection is on form not pocket size.”
Well, we hope this exclusion serves as a motivation to work harder and get back to the top.
