Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has left out Samuel Chukwueze and Joe Aribo from his 24-man squad for an international friendly against Cameroon.
Villarreal winger Chukwueze has been out injured after hurting his hamstring in the Europa League semi-final second leg against Arsenal.
For Rangers midfielder Aribo, he seems to have been excused following a hectic season with the newly-crowned Scottish champions.
Also trimmed from the squad are FC Porto left-back Sanusi Zaidu, Leganes’ Kenneth Omeruo, West Bromwich Albion’s Semi Ajayi, Almeria’s Sadiq Umar and Heartland goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa.
Nigeria’s game against Cameroon is billed for June 4 in Wiener Neustadt, Austria.
The fixture will be part of Rohr’s men preparations for their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign which begins in September.
Nigeria is zoned in Group C of the qualifiers alongside Cape Verde, Liberia and Central African Republic.
