Simon against South Africa in 2019 AFCON Qualifier
Super Eagles’ winger, Moses Simon has not given up hope of appearing in his first ever FIFA World Cup despite initial reports ruling him out of the tournament, with the player now wanting to undergo further scans in London ahead of the England game to ascertain if he can still force his way to the Mundial, can authoritatively confirm.
Coach Gernot Rohr earlier revealed that the Gent winger will be undergoing further scans in Abuja to see if he would be fit, however, a very close source to the winger revealed to this medium that Simon still wants further tests in the UK.
“Simon doesn’t trust the scan results being conducted here. He wants it to be delayed till the team gets to London.
“If Rohr leaves the scan till London, it means he will still have to accommodate Simon in his 25- man squad for London. If the scan results are favourable, he is willing to wait for the boy’s recovery in time for the World Cup. But what if the London results confirm his worst fears? It can go either way,” the source disclosed.
Rohr is said not to be against the London idea as it would help him make up his mind on one of his regular acts during the qualifiers but it will also affect his World Cup schedule.
