AFCON 2019: Super Eagles defender Collins returns to training
Super Eagles left back Jamiu Collins has returned to training ahead of Nigeria's AFCON 2019 second Group B clash against Guinea on Wednesday.
Collins, who was knocked out from the AFCON 2019 clash against Burundi by injury, had a light training with the team on Monday evening in Alexandria.
Ola Aina took Collins place,and provided the assist for Super Eagles in Saturday’s hard-fought 1-0 win against the Swallows of Burundi.
With regular right-back, Shehu Abdullahi down with a hamstring injury he picked in the game against Burundi, Collins’ return from injury will increase the number of defensive options available to Rohr ahead of the game.
The Super Eagles will face Guinea in their next Group B clash on Wednesday at the Alexandria Stadium.
