Super Eagles manager Sunday Oliseh will not wield the big stick against FC Trencin midfielder Rabiu Ibrahim after the Slovakia-based player was accused of hiding his injury during Nigeria’s goalless World Cup qualifying clash with Swaziland last Friday.
There was serious speculation in Port Harcourt on Monday night that the former Golden Eaglets midfielder may have played his last match under coach Oliseh following his action which saw the player being hauled off within 20 minutes after he struggled to keep up with the pace of the game.
But Super Eagles media officer Toyin Ibitoye revealed to Completesportsnigeria.com that Rabiu can now heave a sigh of relief after he was beckoned upon by Oliseh to join with the rest of the squad in Monday’s training session at the Adokiye Amasiemaka stadium, although but has been ruled out of Tuesday’s tie.
“The matter has been settled by the coach as I talk to you. He (Rabiu) actually trained with the rest of the squad and has been pardoned by the coach
“Coach Sunday Oliseh will make his team known to the public tomorrow,” Ibitoye said.
