Okonkwo out, leaves camp

Chibuzor Okonkwo left the Super Eagles camp  after failing to recover from a thigh injury. The Heartland defender was also diagnosed with chicken pox by team medics and was excused to return home.

”It is unfortunate that Chibuzor has had to go home,” head coach Samson Siasia said on Friday. “In addition to his injury, he also has chicken pox so we had to excuse him.

”But our thoughts are with him and the doctor has assured me that he will be fine within one week.”

It means the full back is also ruled out of next week’s international friendly against Ghana in London. No replacement will be called up, with Fengor Ogude and Efe Ambrose capable options for the coaches at right back.
