Super Eagles Media Officer, Femi Raji, has confirmed two players have been dropped from the 25-man list invited for the international friendly against Mexico scheduled for July 3.
Raji told News Agency of Nigeria that the players dropped were Christopher Nwaeze of Kwara United FC and Ifeanyi Anaemena of Rivers United.
“We had a visa appointment today (Friday) at the U.S. Embassy, because of that, we didn’t train this morning.
“We will be training this evening at the Aguiyi Ironsi Barracks.
“For now, two players Christopher Nwaeze and Ifeanyi Anaemena have been dropped.
“Not everybody will make the final list, and the only reason a coach can drop a player could be that he didn’t meet up with standard.
“In fact, they were not dropped for injuries, not indiscipline, obviously it’s what the coach wants going by his strategy,” Raji said.
