Iheanacho still needs to prove himself to make AFCON final 23-man squad

16 May 2019, 12:30

Former Nigeria international Friday Ekpo believes that Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho’s place in the final AFCON squad is nowhere near sealed.

The struggling Iheanacho was listed in coach Gernot Rohr provisional squad this week, where he is up against five other European-based hot strikers.

“Iheanacho has been a very good player, his potential or ability is now left for him to really help himself. Two or three weeks in camp training is not the same as playing consistently with your club,” said Ekpo to Brila.

With coach Rohr set to trim the squad from 25 to 23, Ekpo is hopeful that Iheanacho will make himself countered.

“I just pray he will really get doing better for himself, let’s see how he will prove himself to the coach to select him for the final 23 people,” concluded Ekpo.
