Revealed- Real Reason Why Iheanacho Is Not In Peseiro’s Super Eagles Squad For AFCON Qualifiers
The main reason why Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho isn’t in the sqaud of the senior national team of Nigeria for today’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers has been made known to OwnGoalNigeria.
Iheanacho’s name was conspicuously missing from the list of players for the two friendly games against Mexico and Ecuador respectively. He still wasn’t considered when the coach rejigged the squad for today’s AFCON 2023 qualifiers against Sierra Leone.
His omission led to talks of a possible bleak future for the left footed forward in the senior national team of Nigeria under new coach Jose Peseiro but we found out it’s far from it as adminstrative issues kept him out of the team.
We gathered he is due for UK citizenship and subsequently submitted his Nigerian passport for the process around same time it was needed for the trip to the United States of America and Nigeria for the qualifiers.
He is expected to be back in the team once the process is completed. A team source exclusively revealed to this portal on the condition of anonymity insisting that Peseiro is aware of the reason and ready to call him up for future games.
