Nigeria VS Cameroon: Kayode Dropped, Akpeyi Retained; Mikel, Ighalo Recalled

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is considering dropping Girona striker Kayode Olanrewaju for the essential 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon toward the beginning of September.

Rohr will this week release a 28-man squad for the September 1 and September 4 clashes, with five of them on stand-by.

Also expected to miss out are Victor Osimhen, Maroof Yusuf and Kenneth Omeruo, who has been inactive as he awaits a decision on his next step at Chelsea.

Other players are Tyronne Ebuehi, Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong, Elderson Echiejile, Shehu Abdulahi, Chidozie Awaziem, Odion Ighalo, Mikel Obi, Wilfred Ndidi, Oghenekaro Etebo, and John Ogu.
