Meanwhile, Gent attacker Simon has been put on standby and will travel with the team to London for a scan to ascertain the level of his injury.

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has dropped four players from his provisional 30-man squad: goalkeeper Dele Ajiboye, defenders Stephen Eze and Uche Agbo, and forward Junior Lokosa.

The squad, comprising 3 goalkeepers, 9 defenders, 7 midfielders and 5 attackers, will join Chelsea star Victor Moses in the United Kingdom as they prepare for the friendly game against England on Saturday.

"Sadly, my journey to the World Cup ends here".

Former Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi is the captain of the squad which must be whittled down to 23 by June 4, with the tournament starting on June 14.
