AFCON 2019: Rohr names two Super Eagles players who won’t face Guinea


Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed that the duo of Jamilu Collins and Shehu Abdullahi are out of their second Group B fixture at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations against Guinea.

The two fullbacks will not feature against the Syli Stars as Nigeria seek early qualification for the Round of 16 on Wednesday.

Speaking with SportingLife, Rohr revealed that both Collins and Abdullahi have had scans but are doubtful for the game in Alexandria.

“We still miss the two players Jamilu Collins and Shehu Abdullahi. The two players had a scan today.

“It will be difficult to have them play against Guinea on Wednesday,” Rohr said.

Abdullahi was stretched out during the 1-0 win over Burundi on Saturday.
