Omeruo Out Of Eagles – Uganda Friendly

By Johnny Edward:


Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo will play no part in Tuesday’s international friendly match against the Uganda Cranes reports


Omeruo who featured as one of the three centre-backs for Nigeria in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nation qualifying match at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg has been excused from the game by the Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr CSN gathered.


The 25-year-old Leganes, Omeruo defender becomes the third Super Eagles player to have pulled out from the international friendly billed for the Stephen Keshi stadium, Asaba, Delta State.


Leon Balogun and Ola Aina are the other two players to have pulled out of the game due to injury.


The Leganes defender is expected to fly back to his base in Spain on Wednesday.


Ahead of Tuesday’s clash, Nigeria and Uganda have met seven times with the Cranes winning four times and drawing once.


Nigeria with two wins against Uganda will be hoping to avenge the 1-0 home loss suffered in 2015 at the Akwa Ibom International stadium.

    This footballer sabi make mistakes

  • Its so bad. Its been long since he played for the national team.

  • Ikeben 3 months ago

    This is not good news at all. Who will now defend for us. Balogun, Aina, Omeruo all out injured. If though it is a friendly match, we don’t need another defeat at home. Uganda are no longer a small team, they even qualified with 13points from 5 matches while we qualified with 10 points. I expect the coach to try out some new players with some key players as well to give a befitting game for the fans. Wishing Super Eagles a victorious outing.

  • Troost, Ajayi have been in the squad for months at least for the last 3 games. They will pair up plus we have Adeleye who was called up for this squad and Ogu has played centre back recently.
    We are covered for defenders
