Nigeria’s Super Eagles are yet to replace Odion Ighalo on their final AFCON 2021 squad just as the pair of Jamilu Collins and late call-up Tyronne Ebuehi are due in Garoua today, officials said.

The three-time African champions had hoped to replace Ighalo with Cyriel Dessers after his Saudi Arabian club Al Shabab refused to release the striker for the AFCON.

The CAF media committee would have had to approve this last-ditch replacement and that would be in the event that Ighalo will be unavailable on health grounds.

Ighalo has been philosophical about the situation, saying “We plan God decides” on an Instagram post.

Nigeria will therefore present a 27-man squad in Cameroon as a result.

Meanwhile,  defenders Collins and Ebuehi are expected to join the rest of the squad in Garoua today.

The team landed in Garoua Wednesday night.

They will play a warm-up game against local side Cotonsport behind closed doors on Friday.

The Eagles open their campaign against Egypt on Tuesday, January 11 .
