2021 AFCON qualifier: Rohr invites Enyimba defender Anaemena to replace Idowu

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has called up Enyimba defence stalwart Ifeanyi Anaemena to replace Bryan Idowu as the three-time African champions get set to open their 2021 AFCON qualifying campaign against Benin’s Squirrels in Uyo on Wednesday.

The defender will also be part of the squad for the Day Two clash with Lesotho in Maseru on Sunday, 17th November.

Russia –based World Cup left-back Bryan Idowu submitted his international passport for renewal, but the document was not ready in time for him to travel to Nigeria for the encounter.

Anaemena was impressive for the Eagles B in their 2020 African Nations Championship qualifier against Togo at the Agege Stadium last month and has also been a key player for Enyimba, two –time CAF Champions League winners, as they reached the group phase of this year’s CAF Confederation Cup competition.
