Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho was snubbed by Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr in the two recent games against Libya in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Iheanacho did not get any minutes on the pitch because former Watford striker Odion Ighalo was in a rich vein of form and not as a result of fitness concerns, a Super Eagles insider has informed this website.

Iheanacho started the AFCON qualifiers against South Africa and Seychelles but was substituted in both matches.
