SS Lazio of Italy midfielder Ogenyi Onazi will miss the Super Eagles home tie against Egypt in Kaduna due to the red card he
got in the 2-0 win over Chad last year, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Onazi who was listed in the 20 overseas –based players for Nigeria’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-take against the Pharaohs of Egypt this month will however be eligible for the reverse fixture against the Pharaohs in Alexandria four days later.
Onazi was picked along with John Mikel Obi (Chelsea FC, England); Kelechi Iheanacho (Manchester City, England); Azubuike Okechukwu (Yeni Matalyspor, Turkey) as the four overseas –based midfield players for the double header against Hector Cuper's team.
Onazi who is the vice-captain of the team has eight Serie A appearances for the Biancocoleste this term.
