Super Eagles’ Coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed that Leicester City of England midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi is fit and will start in the team’s warm-up game against the Czech Republic in Austria, revealing that the player was only rested for the England game for precautionary reasons, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Franco-German tactician, who made this known during his post-match conference in Wembley, said the country had to follow the protocol given by Leicester to ensure the player fully recovers for the World Cup.
“Today was not the moment for him to play; we have a protocol from Leicester and Puel because we have a good relationship; we have a very good information from the medical team and we follow exactly the protocol from Leicester City.
“He will start the game against Czech and I hope if he plays he will be fit for our first game against Croatia on the June 16,” Rohr concluded.
