Crotone of Italy forward Simy Nwankwo will lead the attack of the Super Eagles of Nigeria when they take on Seychelles in the African Cup of Nations Qualifiers, Owngoalnigeria.com understands.
The Crotone forward who was a part of the Nigerian team to the 2018 World Cup in Russia will once again get the chance to prove himself in the colours of Nigeria.
At the moment coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has decided to leave under fire striker Odion Ighalo out of the team despite his fine goal scoring run in the Chinese Super League.
The decision to leave the Chanchung Yatai forward out of the squad for the game was agreed between the coach and the player as it will be in his best interest at least for now.
Ighalo was largely blamed by Nigerians for the 1-2 loss against Argentina which cost them a spot in the round of 16 at the World Cup, and Rohr is wary of the fact that his invitation for the Eagles first game after the World Cup will be met with discerning voices.
