Super Eagles Manager, Gernot Rohr will be without three of his key players ahead of the clash between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Pirates of Seychelles.

Alexander Iwobi, William Troost-Ekong and Ola Aina have all been ruled out of the Nations Cup qualification game against Seychelles through injury.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will be looking to keep their qualifications hopes alive when they face the Pirates of Seychelles away from home on Saturday after a shaky start to the AFCON qualifiers.

Iwobi who missed Arsenal’s away victory over Cardiff City in the Premier League on Sunday has been ruled out of the clash against the Pirates.

While Troost-Ekong injured himself in Udinese’s 1-0 defeat to Fiorentina away from home although he managed to play the whole duration of the game at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Ola Aina was replaced late in the game against SPAL by Alex Berenguer with muscular injury as Torino ran out 1-0 victors in the Serie A game.

The trio join team captain John Mikel Obi, who had previously been ruled out of the game on the injury list. Gernot Rohr is expected to name his replacements for them before the Eagles fly out for the game.
