By Adeboye Amosu: Nigeria midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo has been omitted from Las Palmas’ squad for Saturday’s Spanish LaLiga clash against Eibar, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Etebo has struggled to train all week following a muscle problem, with the club confirming the injury on their official website on Tuesday.
He has now been omitted from Las Palmas’ 18-man squad for the game against Eibar after failing to recover from the injury.
His international teammate, Imoh Ezekiel, however made the squad for the game.
Former Warri Wolves player Etebo joined Las Palmas on loan from Portuguese club CD Feirense in January.
Etebo has made 13 league appearances for Las Palmas since the switch.
The player will hope the injury is not severe enough to stop him from attending the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia with some of his teammates already battling to be fit for the mundial.
The duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Tyronne Ebuehi are currently out with injury, while centre-back Leon Balogun and Henry Onyekuru have just returned from spells out.
