The Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has spoken on the readiness of his team ahead of their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers match against Sierra Leone in March.
Rohr in the statement provided an update on the fitness level of Moses Simon, Wilfred Ndidi and Victor Osimhen.
The Super Eagles coach added that the injury of Francis Uzoho is a major concern ahead of their clash against Sierra Leone.
He further stated that Moses Simon and Ndidi of Leceister City will be back on the pitch in the next few days.
Rohr while speaking AOI Football said: “There is only one major injury concern and that is the goalkeeper, Uzoho due to the fact he has been out of action for the past couple of weeks”.
“Victor Osimhen will be better in a short period, while Omeruo has an injury on the head, Kalu, whom I saw, is already nursing a comeback this weekend.”
“As for Moses, we have to wait to know the extent of his situation, and for Ndidi, he is resting very well and will be fit very soon, and then we have a little injury for Etebo, but it’s not a big one.”
The Super Eagles are with six points in Group L after defeating the Benin Republic and Lesotho in their opening two games.
