UCL: Echiejile Dropped From Monaco Squad

By Johnny Edward:

​Super Eagles defender ​Elderson Echiejile has been left out of the Monaco squad to face Young Boys in Tuesday night's Champions League second leg clash.

Echiejile missed the first leg due to a bout of malaria but despite​ rejoining ​ the group at the weekend ​he was left out for the clash.

The 27-year-old left back is expected to return for the Super Eagles clash against Tanzania next month.

Monaco are tipped to advance to the play-offs following their 3-1 against Young Boys in Berne in the first leg.

Meanwhile the draw for the play-offs for the UEFA Champions League will hold on Friday.​
