Only 29 players are left in the race to represent Nigeria at the World Cup in Russia as Moses Simon, one of the players in the 30-man shortlist, has been ruled out of the World Cup.

Simon who plays for Belgian Jupiler League side, Gent, will not be making the trip to London for the friendly against England, let alone the World Cup in Russia.

Rohr confirmed to newsmen in Port Harcourt that Simon’s World Cup dreams are over

“It is unfortunate Moses Simon will not be travelling with the team on Tuesday because he is down with an injury,” Rohr said on Sunday

“The nature of his injury is such that he won’t be recovering quickly enough to make the World Cup,” he added.

The German tactician is expected to drop four more players after Monday’s friendly game against DR Congo.
