Rohr confirms Iheanacho, others departure from Super Eagles’ camp

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, will miss his country’s next World Cup qualifier in Cape Verde.

The 24-year-old striker scored both of the goals in their 2-0 win over Liberia Friday but will miss their next qualifier away from home against Cape Verde because the island nation is on the United Kingdom’s red list.

There are nine players leaving,” he confirmed. “It’s all the team, so there will be another team; it’s not easy to build another team in only two days and to play on a synthetic pitch.

“It’s the other side of the extreme situation we are coming from a heavy grass after the rain to a dry synthetic pitch.

“We have to build another defence, another midfield. The goalscorer Kelechi will leave, so it will not be easy. It’s a challenge for the staff and for the players, but we have to show our solidarity.”
