AFCON: Gernot Rohr, 19 Super Eagles Players Uncertain For Sierra Leone Match

At least, 19 Nigerian players, including the Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, may be unavailable for the AFCON qualifying match with Sierra Leone due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Diamond Hub 101 reports.

Players in affected countries like France, England, Italy, Germany and Spain might be out of the list of players for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers match due to the rules guiding the deadly disease.



The Federal Ministry of Health through the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has also advised travelers to Nigeria...


Travelers from countries with ongoing local transmission but who show no symptoms on arrival should self-isolate at home for 14 days after arrival. If travelers from countries with ongoing local transmission feel ill with fever, cough or difficulty breathing within 14 days of arrival in Nigeria, please, observe self-isolation immediately by staying indoors and avoiding contact with people.

This statement means that the likes of Maduka Okoye, Kenneth Omeruo, Chidozie Awaziem, Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong, Olaoluwa Aina, Jamilu Collins, Oluwasemilogo Ajayi, Kingsley Ehizibue, Abdullahi Shehu, Etebo Oghenekaro, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ramon Azeez, Alex Iwobi, Victor Osimhen, Moses Simon, Samuel Chukwueze, and Samuel Kalu may be absent.

Also, Club physicians are very hesitant to let players who are multi-million pound assets travel overseas given the high risks attached.

Manager Rohr is also doubtful as he also would be coming into the country with the players from other affected countries. This may cause the match to be postponed to a later date.
