Nigeria could present a team of players with only four players on the substitute bench against Senegal on Thursday, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
So far 17 players are in the camp of the team ahead tomorrow’s clash at The Hive, and going by scoops gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com they are the only players expected to dress for the game unless some players arrive the team’s camp.
As exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com, A British born goalkepper of Nigerian descent is already under consideration by coach Gernot Rohr following uncertainty over the quick arrival of Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi.
Akpeyi according to reports has been ruled out of the clash totally, a situation which forced Rohr to hand a call up to the unnamed Nigerian goalkepper born in the United Kingdom.
However, Oghenekaro Etebo, Uche Agbo and Musa Mohammed are also feared out of the clash with Senegal due to visa issues, if they fail to meet up with the team for their last training session by 4pm later today.
