According to reports gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com Gernot Rohr has concluded plans to replace injured captain Mikel Obi with Wilfred Ndidi in the midfield when Nigeria take on Senegal and Burkina Faso in two highly profile games this month.

As reported by Owngoalnigeria.com , Mikel the captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria have been granted permission by Rohr to miss the upcoming friendly ties, to allow him settle down at his new club Tianjin Teda of China.

To that effect Ndidi who has in the past replaced Mikel in the Super Eagles midfield during competative games will be handed a start against Senegal and Burkina Faso.

Ndidi’s form for Leicester City has been one of the bright side of a dour 2017 for the Foxes, and he could line up in the midfield alongside Ogenyi Onazi and Oghenekaro Etebo who will play just behind the main striker.
