Gernot Rohr has confirmed the unavailability of Shehu Abdullahi for the return leg of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya on Tuesday in Sfax as a result of the injury he copped on Saturday,

Shehu was substituted in the 18th minute of the game and was replaced by Ola Aina as the Super Eagles cruised to a 4-0 win.

Rohr disclosed that he does not expect the injury to rule the Bursaspor man out for a long time but he would need a lot of rest to ensure that he recovers quickly and as a result of that he has been excused from the Afcon qualifier against the Mediterranean Knights on Tuesday.

“Shehu cannot play on Tuesday and we already, we lost Onazi to inflammation of the Achilles and he won’t be available for the game with Libya in Tunisia also,” Rohr told the media.

“We have 22 players now ready for the game on Tuesday. We will stick with these players and are hopeful of a good result in Tunisia because it is a neutral ground for both nations.”

However, the Super Eagles boss confirmed that there won’t be fresh call-ups as he hopes to stick with the remaining players for the crucial encounter in Sfax. (
