After seeing his combative midfielder miss back to back league games, Super Eagles gaffer Gernot Rohr is currently monitoring the situation Oghenekaro Etebo ahead of his side’s clashes against Seychelles and Egypt, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Franco-German is hopeful that the player’s injury will not be as bad as earlier feared as he wants to have a fully fit squad for the matches in full preparation for AFCON.
Meanwhile, a very close source to the Stoke City midfielder told AOIFootball.com that the player is fit and will return to action on Saturday when Stoke City face Reading in the championship.
According to the source, the 23-year-old was only rested due to precautionary reasons and will be available for full selection come Saturday.
Etebo was a key part of Nigeria’s AFCON qualification.
