*No return for Man United’s Ighalo
Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr, has finalized his list for this month’s doubleheader AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone as the team bids to become the first country asides host Cameroon to reach the competition next year, AOIFootball.com can authoritatively confirm.
The Franco-German, who said his list would be out three weeks before the main clash, has now compiled and dispatched letters to clubs notifying them of their player’s involvement in the clash.
AOIFootball.com investigations, however, reveal that the Eagles tactician may have handed a debut call-up to Dutch Eredivisie top scorer Cyriel Dessers but there will be no return for new Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo.
Barring any last-minute changes or withdrawal from any of the already listed players, the official 24-man list will be released in the coming days with Rohr not expected to make wholesome changes to the last squad that featured in the opening round of the qualifiers.
Nigeria currently tops Group L with six points and will almost certainly seal qualification to Cameroon next year if they win both legs again Sierra Leone in Asaba and Freetown at the end of the month.
