Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has axed four players from his initial 30-man squad ahead of their friendly encounter with England this Saturday.
The players are Kano Pillars striker Junior Lokosa, Standard Liege midfielder Uche Agbo, Lokomotiv Plovdiv defender Stephen Eze and Plateau United goal tender Dele Ajiboye.
Moses Simon, who is uncertain to make it to Russia due to injury, will still travel with the team to London in order to get a second opinion on his thigh injury after tests carried out in Nigeria confirming that he will be on the sidelines for between three to four weeks.
Rohr will drop two more players after Saturday’s friendly against England at Wembley, and the 23 players remaining will be his final squad for the World Cup.
