Super Eagles winger Moses Simon was not included in Nantes’ squad to face Paris Saint-Germain in Saturday’s league game, Completesports.com reports.
Simon was missing in the 20-man squad published on the club’s Twitter handle on Friday.
His omission does not come as a surprise after he suffered a thigh muscle strain, in the Eagles’ home tie against Cape Verde last Tuesday which ended 1-1.
He was stretched off in the 68th minute and was replaced by Shehu Abdullahi.
The 26-year-old has been impressive for Nantes this season after notching up six assists in 13 league games.
Nantes will hope to secure a positive result at PSG without their Nigerian import having failed to win in back-to-back fixtures.
On their part, PSG are unbeaten in their last six games and lead the standing on 34 points, 10 points ahead of second-placed Lens.
