Head coach Gernot Rohn has decided to drop Super Eagles Kenneth Omeruo from his squad to the World Cup 2018 Russia.

Rohr also said that Anthony Nwakaeme and Kayode Olanrewaju are in danger of missing out as both players were on the fringes of the squad during the qualifying run.

In previous reports, it has been noted that club coach has a 33-man list, from which he will select his final 23 players to star in the next year’s most anticipated tournament.

The 33 players include goal keepers Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Daniel Akpeyi and Francis Uzoho (Vincent Enyeama is on standby).

The defenders are Elderson Echiejile, Shehu Abdullahi, Ola Aina, William Troost Ekong, Leon Balogun, Tyronne Ebuehi, Bryan Idowu, Chidozie Awaziem and Kenneth Omeruo.

Skipper John Obi Mikel leads the midfield, which has also Wilfred Ndidi, Ogenyi Onazi, John Ogu, Mikel Agu, Ogenekaro Etebo and Alex Iwobi.

The attackers are Odion Ighalo, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa, Victor Moses and Moses Simon.

Moreover, reports say that Rohr has already preselected his first 15 players and that the coach will complete the remaining slots after the succeeding friendly matches.
