Nigeria V Tunisia: Ekong Abandons S’ Eagles Team In Austria Camp

Super Eagles Assistant Captain William Troost-Ekong and Bordeaux winger Samuel Kalu will not be available for tomorrow’s friendly against Tunisia as coach Gernot Rohr plans several changes to the starting XI.

Experienced central defender Ekong, who failed to be at his best against Algeria on Friday, has reportedly already jetted out of the Austria camp to his new base in England.

Kalu, on the other hand, has headed back to France after he was injured in Friday’s clash.

Both players started the game against Algeria.

It is understood that Rohr is now toying with a new formation as well as personnel for tomorrow’s game.
