Coach of the Super Eagles, Sunday Oliseh now has increased worries following the withdrawal of winger Victor Moses, who announced, weekend, that he will not take part in Nigeria’s international friendlies against Cameroon and DR Congo this month.

The West Ham United winger says he is withdrawing from both games as a precautionary move against injury.

Reacting, coach Sunday Oliseh said he will now tackle both games with the players he has available.

“We have no choice now but to work with the other players who are available. The fact that the other batch of players from home were not issued their visas last week is also setting us back because we would really want to take advantage of the time to put in a lot of work,” Oliseh said.

Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo, currently on loan to Turkish side Kasimpasa SK, has since pulled out of both friendlies with injury.

The Super Eagles play the Leopards of Democratic Republic of Congo in Vise, Liege, Thursday, October 8 and will then confront Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions in Dendermonde, Sunday, October 11.
