Mikel To Miss Algeria, Argentina Games
Turkey-based midfielder Mikel Agu has been ruled out of the upcoming Super Eagles games against Algeria and Argentina.
It is understood that the Bursaspor of Turkey player came to the Super Eagles camp in Morocco with a slight knock but the injury has failed to rebate; hence the decision to drop him from the two games.
The ruling out of Mikel Agu means only 22 players are available for Gernot Rohr to pick from for the November games.
The Super Eagles are understood to have landed in Constantine ahead of Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Algeria with Nigeria having booked their place at the world’s biggest football showpiece next year.
It is expected that the Eagles will later on Thursday have a feel of the Stade Mohamed Hamlaoui that would host Friday's encounter.
Kickoff according to officials is 8.30pm Algerian time.
