Just In: Super Eagles midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo out of forthcoming friendlies! Details👇

With only four days to Super Eagles first of two international friendly matches with Algeria and Tunisia, some players would not be available for the encounters.

One of them is Galatasaray’s midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo.  The box to box midfielder will not be available for the two matches after he picked up a knock over the weekend.

Oghenekaro Etebo played all 90 minutes and was very impressive in Galatasaray’s 1-0 loss to Kasimpasa.

The Nigeria Football Federation via its verified Twitter page confirmed this in a post which reads;

🔊 ❗️❗️@NGSuperEagles midfielder @etebo_karo is out of the friendly games against Algeria and Tunisia. He picked up a knock in his club’s game in Turkey yesterday. #SoarSuperEagles #Team9jaStrong

The 24-year-old midfielder is the second Super Eagles player that will miss the two matches.

Napoli’s Victor Osimhen was  excused out of the team after some of his teammates tested positive for  COVID-19.

A replacement is yet to be named by coach Gernot Rohr as at now.
