Trabzonspor midfielder Ogenyi Onazi has been ruled out of Nigeria’s AFCON 2019 Qualifiers tie against Libya tomorrow as he presently struggling with an injury picked up in yesterday’s training.
Onazi started the session with the rest of the players but had to leave midway through it after complaining of discomfort arising from a knock picked up in their first session.
His absence has opened the door for Stoke City forward Oghenekaro Etebo to start against Libya tomorrow in midfield alongside Wilfred Ndidi with Alex Iwobi handed a more advanced role behind the main striker Odion Ighalo.
Yesterday sources close to Onazi said it was just a minor knock but it appears a bit worse than initially feared as he also missed today’s session which is ongoing now behind close doors at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, venue of the game.

If established as correct, then the proposed starting line-up for the match will change as follows using Rohr's famous 4-2-3-1 formation:

Uzoho- Shehu, Ekong, Balogun, Collins- Ndidi, Etebo- Iwobi, Musa, Kalu- Ighalo.

What did they mean by Etebo to take his place? Wasn't Etebo starting in the first place? If so, Rohr must go.

Shehu again. Does not contribute anything meaningful going forward.

I like this our coach for what he has achieved in the last few years but this man stubbornness is very infuriating. Why is ighalo still starting after proving numerous times that his incapable of scoring easy chances? Why is shehu, alleged(wife beater) even called up let alone starting ahead of in form “Aina” anyway sha I will just respect our coach decision because of his previous antecedent at WCQ

I don't know why Rohr keep inviting him. He lost his edge already. He does not even have a spring in his feet anymore. Last time I saw him play in a friendly, he was running like a pregnant woman and I keep wondering if he was suffering from hemorrhoid.

Please let Onazi off the Eagles squad.

Rohr will have to come up with a 12 page essay on why he keeps inviting a deadweight like Onazi, I just don't get why we keep wasting time on the likes of Onazi and Ighalo that are clearly not good enough.

Shehu has been injured and not played for his club for a while. I'll be surprised if he starts ahead of Aina.

If you have been following Etebo's performance at Stoke, you won't make such a statement.

To me the inclusion of Shehu in the starting lineup is even more baffling than Ighalo.

I can see the experience, intelligence, holdup play, and dribbling ability that Ighalo brings to the team, and Success while the greater prospect may have fitness issues, or simply may not have the team understanding yet, he also has not been playing that much club football even though he has been making effective cameo appearances. So I can even understand this a little.

What is completely unacceptable is starting a midfielder at RB, when that midfielder has been exposed as not good enough at RB going forward, and that midfielder has been injured all season and only played his first match just last week, and that midfielder doesn't even play RB at his club which is in an inferior league to that of a NATURAL RB, who is playing week in week out in a SUPERIOR LEAGUE, and is getting rave reviews.

What kind of bone headed decision is this ?

The thing is for all of us claiming Rohr is stubborn and conservative, which I agree with to an extent, then why did he quickly drop Idowu for Jamilu Collins ? How do we explain that one ?

This Shehu at RB needs to stop. He is not a RB, he doesn't play that position at his club, and we have the likes of Aina, Ebuehi.

Iwobi and Iheanacho have worked great together, if Success is not fit enough for 90 minutes. Not to mention Iheanacho would be the best freekick taker on our team.

I agree with Shehu. I like the guy, but let him be a midfielder. And let's play a RB at RB.

Everyone else is the best player available at the position with Onyekuru a question mark relative to Musa and Kalu.

BTW Victor Moses being out might actually be a godsend, because I like what I see with Kalu much more than what Moses offered.

I agree completely with the sentiments already expressed above.
I have no earthly idea why Shehu can start ahead of Aina.
I am baffled why Onazi is still in the mix and a younger, better player like Ejaria is ignored.
I can't understand how Ighalo starts ahead of Success.
Even how Balogun who hasn't been playing gets the nod over Semi.

Anyway, make I siddon dey look.
