Gernot Rohr has dropped five players from the Super Eagles squad to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Headlining the dropped players was Nigeria Professional Football League top scorer, Junior Lokosa; former Kano Pillars defender, Stephen Eze; injured Moses Simon; Plateau United goalkeeper, Dele Ajiboye; and Uche Agbo.
The Super Eagles on Wednesday held a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari. From Abuja, they will travel to England for a friendly with the Three Lions on Saturday evening.
From London, the delegation will fly into Bad Tatzmannsdorf, a city in Austria where they will spend eight days at the world–renowned Avita Resort before flying to Russia.
In-between the final camping in Austria, the team will play a final pre-World Cup friendly against the Czech Republic at the Rudolf Tonn Stadium (just outside Vienna) next Wednesday.
