The NFF has released the list of players that will represent Nigeria at the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt. Kelechi Iheanacho and Semi Ajayi have been axed from Nigeria’s squad for the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) after coach Gernot Rohr released his final 23-man list on Sunday.
The two players were unused substitutes on Saturday as Zimbabwe held the Super Eagles to a goalless draw at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.
Nigeria are scheduled to travel to the Egyptian city of Ismailia later today where they will continue their preparations for the Afcon before playing Senegal in another friendly contest at the Ismailia Stadium on June 16.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given all the 24 countries that will participate in AFCON 2019 a deadline of Monday, June 10, to submit their final 23-man squads.
Rohr and the players will fly out to Ismaily, Egypt on Sunday afternoon, to complete the final phase of camping.
The Eagles will face Senegal in their last warm-up fixture this weekend.
