Leganes Defender Omeruo Suffers Injury Ahead Of Super Eagles Squad Announcement
Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr is sweating on the fitness of Kenneth Omeruo, less than three weeks before he announces his first roster for the 2020-2021 season, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

It was a foregone conclusion that the Chelsea product was set to be summoned for the international friendlies against Ivory Coast and Tunisia taking place in Austria next month but there is a new development that would worry Rohr and Super Eagles fans.

Omeruo had to be replaced twelve minutes into Saturday's friendly between Leganes and Albacete BalompiƩ, and the demoted La Liga club have explained that it was an injury-enforced substitution due to discomfort felt by the central defender.

Despite speculation linking the Super Eagle with an exit from Leganes, he was involved in all their pre-season games - starting three and playing the whole of the second half against FC Cartagena.

Apart from today's game, Omeruo was included in the starting lineup against Rayo Vallecano and S.D Eibar, taking his accumulated game time in pre-season to 192 minutes.

CD Leganes' first competitive match of the 2020-2021 campaign comes up against UD Las Palmas in Butarque on Friday, September 11.
