Mba doubtful for Super Eagles at 2014 CHAN

27 December 2013, 18:20

Abuja - Sunday Mba, the Super Eagles’ 2013 African Nations Cup (AFCON) hero, may not be available for the forthcoming African Nations Championship (CHAN), an official said on Thursday in Abuja.

The team’s media officer, Ben Alaiya, who disclosed this in a statement, quoted head coach Stephen Keshi as having expressed doubts about the player’s availability.

"Keshi said on Thursday that Mba was on his way to France to join Bastia, the French league side which first indicated interest in the player after the Nations Cup triumph,’’ the statement said.

It added that the player could leave camp as early as Friday, as he was not one of the players listed for the friendly game in Port Harcourt on Saturday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the home-based Super Eagles are billed to face a Rivers selected side.

The CHAN event, the third since 2009, is for players featuring for clubs on the continent.

Meanwhile, the statement also disclosed that the process of trimming the team had began in earnest on Thursday with the departure from camp of three players.

"The players are Sunshine Stars’ Kingsley Onome, Bendel Insurance’s Bello Ikeleji and Eric Kwame of Plateau United," it said.

The statement said also that more players were being expected to be decamped after the game in Port Harcourt and after Monday’s match against Kano Pillars.
