Why Rohr might drop Mikel Obi, Ighalo from Super Eagles’ next matches

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, is considering dropping the China-based duo of John Obi Mikel and Odion Ighalo, from the squad for their upcoming friendly matches.

Rohr is mulling the decision, because they are stil in pre-season training with their Chinese clubs.

Also, the timing of the friendly games coincides with when the league will resume in China.

Rohr wants Mikel Obi and Ighalo to concentrate on their club especially early into the season, but he is yet to fully make up his mind over excluding them from the squad for the games against Serbia and later Poland.

If the duo are eventually left out, Rohr is considering handing a recall to striker Brown Ideye who recently signed for LaLiga side Malaga and netted his first goal last weekend in their loss to Valencia.

In-form ex Inter-Milan midfielder Joel Obi is also under consideration.
