World Cup: Rohr Considers Axing Onazi & Joel Obi As Ndidi Returns For Czech Republic Friendly

Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has returned to full fitness and he is in line to play for Nigeria when they take on Czech Republic on Wednesday in what will be their final warm ‎up game before the Russia 2018 World Cup starting in June.

Ndidi was even suppose to play some part against in the Eagles last friendly game against England on Saturday but coach Gernot Rohr opt not to introduce him despite asking him to warm up alongside other substitutes.

Today the 21 year old ‎took part in their first full training session in Austria and showed no sign of the injury that brought his season at Leicester City to a premature end last term out.

His return to fitness means he could line up in midfield alongside captain John Obi Mikel leaving Rohr with the option of dropping one of either Ogenyi Onazi or Joel Obi after their below par performance against England.

  • As a matter of fact, the duo of Onazi and Obi could be dropped entirely from the squad for the friendly game against Czech Republic as Rohr was very impressed with the performance of Oghenekaro Etebo following his introduction against England.
