AFCON 2019: Rohr drops Mikel Obi due to injury

Rohr, speaking to the press in Lagos yesterday, said captain John Mikel Obi asked to be excused because he was just recovering from an injury.

“I considered his excuse and the long journey he has to make from China. He needs to focus on his fitness in order to recover fully for club and country.

“In the case of Shehu Abdullahi, he is celebrating Salah. He is not ready for the match, while Tyrone Ebuehi is recovering from an injury as well.”

Rohr also revealed that Chelsea star, Victor Moses, called him to explain he wanted to concentrate on his club and have more time for his family.
