From Richard Jideaka, Brazil:
Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi has ruled out defender Godfrey Oboabona from the game against Argentina even as the Turkey-based star resumed training on Monday.
“Oboabona has returned to training after being cleared by the medics but he will not be as fit as we want him for the game against Argentina on Wednesday in Porto Alegre,” the coach told Complete Sports before the team left Sao Paolo for Porto Alegre.
He said that there was no injury concern in the team and that they are all geared towards the game with the Lionel Messi-led Argentinean team, adding that it is a big game that the boys are looking forward to.
With Oboabona ruled out of the Argentina, Joseph Yobo who has done well so far will marshall the Eagles defence.
