CD Leganes of Spain defender Kenneth Omeruo has been dropped by Coach Gernot Rohr ahead of the Super Eagles clash with Libya on Tuesday evening.
The CD Leganes central defender misses out entirely after manager Gernot Rohr opted to name Rotherham United’s Semi Ajayi in the matchday squad.
Versatile Lokomotiv Moscow fullback Brian Idowu has returned to the 18-man squad only because of the unavailability of Abdullahi Shehu.
Five players in the shape of goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Henry Onyekuru, Kelechi Iheanacho, Isaac Success and John Ogu have retained their places on the bench.
Apart from Omeruo, Chippa United goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, Levante’s Moses Simon and Porto’s Chidozie Awaziem have been overlooked for selection.
The matchday four 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Libya and Nigeria begins at Stade Taïeb Mhiri, Sfax at 1900 hours.
Gernot Rohr will set up his team in a 4-2-3-1 formation against the North African opponents.
