Nigeria vs Senegal: Why Rohr dropped Ahmed Musa, Onyekuru from friendly match

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed that his assistant captain, Ahmed Musa, will not feature in Sunday’s friendly game against Senegal.

Rohr, while speaking with SportingLife, cited ill-health as the reason why the Saudi Arabia-based winger is being left out of the squad.

“Musa is sick as a result of this he will not play against Senegal,” the German said.

Rohr also revealed that striker Henry Onyekuru and right-back Shehu Abdullahi won’t face the Teranga Lions.

“We have done a lot of training here in Ismaila but not for three players who are sick today and they are Ahmed Musa like I told you and Shehu Abdullahi and also Henry Onyekuru,” he added.

There’s however good news as Oghenekaro Etebo and Chidozie Awaziem, who were down with cold while training in Asaba, Delta State, are now fit to play against Senegal.
