Super Eagles duo Victor Osimhen and Kelechi Iheanacho have been ruled out of the team’s friendly game against Mozambique.
This is according to a Sunday update on the team’s X handle.
Osimhen was substituted in Friday’s 2-2 draw with the Green Falcons of Saudi Arabia. But days after the tie, the team’s handlers said the Napoli forward would not be part of Monday’s Mozambique clash as a “precautionary measure on advice of the medical team”.
For Iheanacho, he was excused to enable him to attend to “pressing personal issues”.
