Tyronne Ebuehi and Samuel Kalu have been ruled out of Tuesday’s (today) 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde after their initial Covid-19 test results came out positive, reports Completesports.com.

Ebuehi and Kalu as well as other members of the team took the test on the eve of their departure to Cape Verde for the game.

In following the Covid-19 protocol fully, the Nigeria Football Federation had to get the players to isolate while the other 19 players traveled to Cape Verde.

Media Officer of the team, Babafemi Raji explained that it was necessary to take the appropriate safety steps by having the affected players stay away from the team while waiting for the result of the second test.

“Yes we had two test results return positive and we were duty bound to adhere strictly to laid down safety protocols which we did,”Raji stated.

“The good news is that the second test results have returned negative. We will surely miss Kalu and Ebuehi, but the entire coaching crew led by Mr. Gernot Rohr has worked hard and we don’t want to lose focus. Our aim is to win and get all three points.”

Today’s encounter will take place at the Estádio Municipal Adérito Sena, Mindelo. Kick off 3pm Nigeria time.
