AFCON 2019: Gernot Rohr names two Super Eagles players who won’t face Guinea

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed that the duo of Shehu Abdullahi and Jamilu Collins are out of their second Group B fixture at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations against Guinea.

However, the two fullbacks will not feature against Burundi as Nigeria seek early qualification for the Round of 16 on Wednesday.

Speaking with SportingLife, the Franco Germain Coach revealed that both Abdullahi and Collins have had scans but are doubtful for the game in Alexandria.

Although, we still miss the two players Shehu Abdullahi and Jamilu Collins. The two players had scan today.

No doubt it will be very difficult to have them play against Guinea on Wednesday,” Rohr said.

Shehu Abdullahi was stretched out during the 1-0 win over Burundi on Saturday.
