It would be recalled the duo of Moses Simon and Sadiq Umar were also stopped by their respective clubs from honouring invitations for the qualifiers as a result of travel restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Paul Onuachu and Anayo Iwuala have been named as replacements for the two players by head coach Gernot Rohr.

There are growing fears that more players will also be forced out of the qualifiers.

The Super Eagles will confront Benin Republic on March 27 at the Stade Charles de Gaulle, Porto-Novo, before hosting Lesotho three days later at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

      Infact the Beninoise side are even experiencing something more worse than ours because almost all their foreign players ply their trade in France. And for us here, sincerely we haven’t had a very painful withdrawal. There has been like for like replacement for them so far apart from that of Sadiq. Until someone like Oshimen, Ndidi, Chukwueze, Aribo, Balogun, Nacho withdraws before we can really say there’s fire on the Mountain. So far this ones have not withdrawn, No problem
