Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr has granted defender Kenneth Omeruo permission to leave the Eagles camp to be with his pregnant wife ahead of the birth of his first child.
Omeruo’s wife is will deliver anytime soon and coach of the Nigerian team deem it fit to allow the Chelsea defender who is on loan to Leganes skip Uganda friendly.
The defender played a pivotal role for Nigeria in yesterday’s 1-1 draw against South Africa which helped them seal their spot in next year Africa Cup of Nations.
Nigeria will play host to Uganda at the newly approved Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Delta State.
The encounter is scheduled to kick off at 4:00pm (West African Time) on Tuesday, November 20, 2018.
