Super Eagles winger, Moses Simon has been finally axed from Nigeria’s preliminary World Cup squad after scans conducted in London confirmed that he will be out of action for three weeks.
The Gent player was at the Hive Stadium on Thursday and underwent a series of scans as his international teammates were sweating it out in their penultimate workout before the friendly against England.
”Simon is finally out of the 2018 World Cup and he is unhappy that he won’t be traveling to Russia with the Super Eagles squad,” a Nigerian Federation insider told allnigeriasoccer.com.
”The scan performed on Thursday confirmed he will be out for three weeks. Simon just left the Super Eagles hotel and said he is going to Belgium.”
There are presently 25 players with the national team in London and coach Gernot Rohr must drop two more players by June 4, 2018.
