Abuja - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has dropped midfielder Michael Babatunde from the squad that will travel to Sudan for a first leg AFCON 2015 qualifiers between the two sides.

Keshi said that he has ruled out the Ukraine based midfielder from the encounter because he picked up a knock on the knee while playing for his club.

“We have good cover for him and we pray that he bounces back before the return leg against Sudan in Nigeria,” he declared.
