According to feelers being put out by Super Eagles coach, Gerhard Rohr, two Nigeria internationals with Premier League side, Leicester City, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa, may not make the final selection of Super Eagles heading to Russia this summer.
The Super Eagles manger told SuperSport, “My plan is to execute the World Cup with the players who are playing regularly with their respective clubs.
“How do you expect a coach to jet out to Russia with average players who lack playing time?
“I do take my time to visit various club sides in Europe to beg the coaches to build my players’ mind towards a great competition like the FIFA World Cup.
“I’m sad the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa lack playing time at Leicester City. I and my scouts took time to pay their coach a visit, but we realised their case are getting worse.
“I hope they keep fighting for shirts to get a playing time or quit the club for a better team willing to give them playing time to showcase their talent,” he concluded.
