AFCONQ: Chukwueze will be missed, says Ugbade

Ex International Nduka Ugbade has stated that the Super Eagles will miss forward Samuel Chukwueze during the forthcoming Nations cup qualifiers.

Chukwueze’s injury has ruled him out of the doubleheader encounter next month and Ugbade told brila.net that the Rohr-led side will surely miss Samuel Chukwueze.

“It is an injury that has not made him play much at Villarreal thie year and I am sure the National team will miss him,” Ugbade said.

Meanwhile, head coach Gernot Rohr has revealed new players won’t be invited for their 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in March.

The three-time African champions will square off against the Republic of Benin and then take on Lesotho in Afcon qualifying games.

The Super Eagles are leading Group L with eight points and a win in either of their matches next month will seal their place in the continental showpiece while defeat in both games will halt their target of playing in the competition.
