    Rohr Drafts In Eze, Musa
    Mohammed and Eleke As
    Replacement For Ekong,
    Aina & Iwobi

    Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot
    Rohr has moved swiftly to replace the trio of
    William Troost-Ekong, Ola Aina and Alex Iwobi
    who have all withdrew from the Nigerian team
    for the tie against Seychelles

    Iwobi is reportedly sick and that made him
    miss Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Cardiff City while
    Ola Aina misses out with an injury picked up
    while on duty for his loan side Torino over the
    weekend against SPAL.
    Ekong joined the duo on the withdrawal list
    with a post on the official twitter handle of the
    Nigerian team confirming his withdrawal from
    the game, which will take place on Saturday.
    Owngoalnigeria.com exclusively gathered that
    the trio of Lokomotiv Plovdiv defender Stephen
    Eze, Luzern of Switzerland forward Blessing
    Eleke and Gorica of Croatia defender Musa
    Muhammed have been asked to report to
    Seychelles.
    They were originally placed on the standby list
    by Rohr and with the recent spate of
    withdrawals, they have been contacted to join
    the team before the game on Saturday.
