The teenage striker has recovered from the hamstring injury he sustained in the previous qualifier against Tanzania, but has been allowed by the Manu Garba-led technical crew to fight for a place in the first team of FC Porto in the coming season.

“Eze is ruled out of the qualifiers against Lesotho as he will be involved with his club in pre-season training,” disclosed a team official.

Nigeria host Lesotho on August 16 in a first leg clash, while the return encounter will take place two weeks later in Maseru.
