Super Eagles at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium on Tuesday evening have moved up to twenty, as three more players have linked up with the team at Le Meridien Ibom Hotel and Golf Resort in Uyo.
”We will not be distracted. We will get our three points on Saturday”.
Media reports in the country reveal that the striker will not face the Super Eagles in their penultimate Group B qualifier away.
The Chipolopolo striker netted a brace in their 3-1 win over the Desert Warriors of Algeria at Heroes Stadium on September 2 where he sustained the same injury.
“Brian (Mwila) will not be part of the team as he had a recurrence of the injury he suffered during the Algeria game. It is best to give him time to fully recover,” he said to FAZFootball.
Furthermore, coach Wedson Nyirenda has since replaced Mwila and Banda with Power Dynamos forward Alex Ng’onga and Zesco United’s John Ching’andu.
The 2012 African champions are in Accra, Ghana since Sunday where they will set up a training base ahead of their encounter against in Uyo.
