Gernot Rohr, the Super Eagles Coach, has been handed a defensive boost ahead of the AFCON 2021 qualifying match against Lesotho after Center Half Kenneth Omeruo was passed fit for the clash by the team doctor.
Omeruo was an injury doubt after picking up a knock during training before the match against Benin Republic, and he was dropped to the bench as an unused substitute in the 2-1 win.
The Super Eagles arrived Maseru on Saturday with all 23 players invited by the Coach and team doctor, Ibrahim Gyaran gave an update on the players’ match fitness.
Although it is uncertain if the centre back will be selected for Sunday’s game, Gyaran told thenff.com that ‘’there are no injuries within the 23 –man playing the body.”
Nigeria currently sit at the top of Group L with maximum points after matchday one and can go three points clear if they pick a win in Maseru.
