. He is not likely to feature against Tunisia, ” Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr told reporters on Tuesday.
“He has played two games already and has a good tournament as well. We must remember there are people who participated in the qualifiers but are not here. He is here with us because he accepted to come to the AFCON without any preconditions.”
The team’s defender Chidozie Awaziem will also miss the game due to suspension.
Awaziem picked a yellow card late in the game against Algeria which effectively ruled him out of Wednesday’s encounter.
Rohr has also hinted that there will be a change in goal.
The Tunisia-Nigeria Wednesday’s Third-Place match will take place at the Al Salam Stadium, Cairo. The kickoff is 8 pm, Nigerian time.
