Following his exclusion from Nigeria's 23-man squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), football enthusiasts took to social media to express their concerns over Kelechi Iheanacho's dip in form.

The Leicester City star has been struggling for form after playing a bit-part role for the Foxes in the 2018-19 Premier League season.

Despite Rohr's claims that Iheanacho would get some playing time against Zimbabwe, the 22-year-old was missing in action on Saturday and was made to wait for his first game for the Super Eagles in 2019. 

Fans are now worried by the two-time Caf's Most Promising Talent of the Year.
