Gernot Rohr’s men began preparation for the World Cup qualifier against their Chipolopolo without the England based professionals

Chelsea’s Victor Moses and Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi were missing in Tuesday evening’s training as Nigeria prepare for their crunch encounter against Zambia in Uyo.

Iwobi, who was on target in Arsenal’s 2-0 victory against Brighton and Hoves over the weekend, was given permission to sit out of Super Eagles’ drill by Gernot Rohr – as he arrived late afternoon.

Moses, on the other hand, is yet to arrive camp despite his no-show in Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

Moses Simon, Chidozie Awaziem, and Ola Aina completed the list of players who did not warm up with the three-time African champions.
