Trio of Super Eagles Players That May Miss The 2019 AFCON


These players are either playing very well right now at their European clubs and are normally expected to make the cut for the AFCON in Egypt or have been in the group for a significant timeframe to be viewed as a portion of the head mentor’s preferred players.

Izuchukwu Okosi investigates these Super Eagles trio following Rohr’s choice not to stretch out solicitations to new players who have never played under his supervision.

  1. Mikel Agu

Disagreeable with the greater part of the Nigerian fans, Mikel Agu has played only 15 alliance recreations for Portuguese side Vitoria Setubal this season chalking up a sum of 1,319 minutes of playing time.

The guarded midfielder who has scored once and has been yellow checked twice at his club this season was seemingly the best player when the Eagles played against Uganda in a well disposed at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba in November 2018.

The battle for guarded midfield positions in the Super Eagles will be an intriguing one as just Wilfred Ndidi (notwithstanding any unexpected circumstances – John Mikel Obi plays as assaulting midfielder for Nigeria) is maybe the main player in that position who is nearly ensured a spot in the group.

Mikel Agu has been on the sidelines since February 3 in the wake of enduring muscle damage.

  1. Samuel Chukwueze

Villarreal of Spain winger Samuel Chukwueze has been in spectacular structure for the Yellow Submarine this season notwithstanding their playing with transfer. He has scored five objectives in 22 class appearances with 1,359 minutes played.

Presently the Spanish side are in sixteenth position in the La Liga table and are out of risk at any rate until further notice.

The previous Golden Eaglets star who was an individual from the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup winning group in Chile where he was decreed as the third best player is relied upon to be in the Super Eagles group for the AFCON in Egypt but on the other hand is being considered for the Nigeria U-20 side who will take an interest in the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland between May 23 and June 15, 2019 as he is still inside as far as possible in an offer to include a touch of star residue to the Flying Eagles squad.

  1. Semi Ajayi

Rotherham United’s Semi Ajayi is the glad holder of the EFL Championship Player of the Month grant for March 2019.

From his guarded midfield position (he began the season as a focal protector) he has scored seven group objectives in 44 Championship amusements up until this point. He has begun in the sum total of what and has been subbed off just once!

Ajayi’s hard working attitudes is extraordinary however his style of play and introduction may neutralize him in an African competition.
