That Super Eagles striker. Kelechi Iheanacho has been dropped by Coach Gernot Rohr is an established fact.
However, former Super Eagles star, Edema Fuludu said…
“I wasn’t surprised really, he’s not in his best form, and if you are not in form there is nothing anyone can do about it. “I believe the coach gave it serious thought; why take a player who is struggling when you have those that are in top form.”
“He needs to give players fair opportunity, Iheanacho being on the list would have come as a shock to many. “Because the coach made it clear that players performance at club level will determine players inclusion in the AFCON list.”
“Kelechi has not been fantastic, but this happens to players at some point in their career, it’s just sad that it came at a time when he would have been valuable to the team if he was in great form.”
“There is nothing I’d include or take out from that list, only a coach knows and understands the strength of each of his players. “I just want to urge the selected ones to make their inclusion count by playing cohesively and listening to instruction and also being disciplined will help them.”
