Rohr rues Mikel, Ikeme’s absence against Senegal

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has rued the absence of some of the key players in his squad for the national team’s international friendly against Senegal at the Hive Stadium last Thursday.
Chelsea right fullback Victor Moses withdrew from the squad citing injury, Mikel and the other Chinese-based players Odion Ighalo and Brown Ideye were excused, while Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Carl Ikeme picked up an injury ahead of the game.
“We had good players missing- three very important players – Victor Moses injured, Mikel not here and the other Chinese players not here and Carl Ikeme, ” Rohr told Ben TV.
“The goalkeeper was arriving in the morning of the game, spent all night long in the plane coming from South Africa.
“The team had a very good cohesion after the goal, the goal was unlucky after a corner, but the reaction was very good. We have never lost a game, it is nice.”
The Super Eagles will have their last practice game on Monday evening before returning to their various clubs.
