AFCON 2019: Rohr announces final Super Eagles 23-man squad (Full list)

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed his 23-man travelling party to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations this month.

Kelechi Iheanacho and Semi Ajayi are the two players that have been dropped, as DAILY POST reported last night.

Both players did not feature on Saturday, as Nigeria were held to a 0-0 draw by Zimbabwe in an international friendly played in Asaba, the Delta State capital.

The returning John Mikel Obi makes the cut and is expected to captain the team at the tournament, as well as the assistant skipper, Ahmed Musa, who has stood in his absence.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given all the 24 countries that will participate in AFCON 2019 a deadline of Monday, June 10, to submit their final 23-man squads.

Rohr and the players will fly out to Ismaily, Egypt on Sunday afternoon, to complete the final phase of camping.

The Eagles will face Senegal in their last warm-up fixture this weekend.
