– Kelechi Iheanacho has been dropped from the Super Eagles 2019 AFCON team
– Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr dropped him and Semi Ajayi on Sunday morning, June 9
– Rohr is expected to fly to Egypt with 23 other players for the Nations Cup
Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has been dropped by Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr ahead of Nigeria’s campaign at the 2019 Nations Cup in Egypt.
Semi Ajayi who plays for English club Rotherham United was also reported to have been dropped by Gernot Rohr who was not impressed with his game.
At the just concluded Premier League season, Kelechi Iheanacho struggled for form and was left on the bench for most games for his club.
He got a chance to face Manchester City in week 37 of the Premier League season and saw a good chance to score against Pep Guardiola’s men which could have ended their title hope.
But Iheanacho surprisingly missed the glorious chance against Manchester City goalie Ederson.
Meanwhile, 23 Super Eagles players are expected to fly to Egypt on Sunday, June 9, via a chartered flight where they will play Senegal in another friendly before the Nations Cup.
