Rohr drops Moses, recalls Onyekuru against Algeria

by on October 17, 2017

Injured Chelsea ace Victor Moses has been dropped from the list of players called up by coach of the senior national team of Nigeria for their dead rubber World Cup 2018 qualifiers tie against Algeria.

Rohr made it known shortly after the Eagles progressed to the World Cup courtesy of their 1-0 win over Zambia that some players won’t be called up for the game against Al­geria.

Although the coach insists he needs a formidable team for the tie against Algeria next month, Moses is among the players the coach has made up his mind not to call for the game in Algiers.

The injury to Moses in Chelsea shock 1-2 loss to Crystal Palace which is expected to rule him out for at least four weeks has now left the manager with no option than to drop the 26 year old.

Henry Onyekuru will take his spot in the team as Rohr has de­cided to hand the Everton loanee a recall owing to his fine form for his loan side Anderlecht.

Onyekuru has six league goals for Anderlecht, a tally that has lead to talks about a return to Everton in January, with the forward also confirming talks were held in that direction with Everton last week.
