Drop Payer S’Eagles List For Benin/Lesotho Ties

Samuel Kalu has emerged as a major doubt for the Super Eagles 2021 AFCON qualifiers after going off injured in Bordeaux’s 3-1 win at Dijon on Sunday.  

His French club confirmed Kalu’s injury in a Tweet on their verified Twitter handle during the game.  

The Nigerian was replaced just 16 minutes of the game by Nicolas de Preville.  

Kalu was included in Super Eagles’ 24-man squad for the qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho this month.  

And now – with the injury level not yet ascertained – Genort Rohr may be contemplating dropping him for another player.

Prior to Sunday’s win, Bordeaux had lost seven and drawn one of their last eight games.
