Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, dropped Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho ahead of Nigeria’s campaign at the 2019 Nations Cup in Egypt.
Also Semi Ajayi who plays for English club Rotherham United was also reported to have been dropped by Gernot Rohr who was not impressed with his game.
At the just concluded Premier League season, Kelechi Iheanacho struggled for form and was left on the bench for most games for his club. He got a chance to face Manchester City in week 37 of the Premier League season and saw a good chance to score against Pep Guardiola’s men which could have ended their title hope.
The rest of the squad will travel for the tournament which kicks on June 21, in Egypt.
