Nigeria’s preparations for the international friendly against Mexico have been dealt a big blow after Ikechukwu Ezenwa was withdrawn from the squad.
The Heartland goalkeeper suffered an injury while playing for his club in the Nigeria Professional Football League and joined the Super Eagles camp.
It was detected by the Eagles medical team that the experienced net minder will not be available.
Meanwhile, Joshua Oluwayemi, who is the first-choice with the Tottenham Hotspur U23 has been called up as replacement for Ikechukwu.
The other goalkeepers in the team are John Noble and Stanley Nwabali.
