CD Leganes defender Kenneth Omeruo is the latest player to pull out of the Super Eagles friendly against Ukraine as he is currently processing his work permit in Spain.
Omeruo told brila.net: “Yes, it is true I will not be part of the match because my work permit is still in the process here in Spain.
“It is an important process I need to get done for me to continue to play in the Spanish La Liga and also concentrate more on my game. So, I will miss the match against Ukraine.
“All the same, I wish my teammates the best of luck in the match.”
Leganes have got off to a poor start in the new season after losing their first three matches, but Omeruo told brila.net they will bounce back in no time.
“We are having a rough start to the season having lost three matches now, but we are hopeful we will fight back,” he said.
“Last season, we also started slowly before we picked up the momentum that got us to a comfortable position on the table.
“I believe in my team and I know we will certainly pick up the challenge and get back to winning games.”
