SCORENigeria has specially gathered that free agent Shehu Abdullahi will be overlooked by the Super Eagles for next month’s friendlies against Cote d’Ivoire and Tunisia because he has not been active since he parted ways with Turkish club Bursaspor.
On Saturday, Shehu posted an emotional farewell message to his Turkish club, saying he wishes to pursue a new challenge while wishing them the best going forward.
However, he did not disclose his next destination.
His lack of action since July has effectively dropped him from the squad coach Gernot Rohr will name this week for next month’s matches.
In his absence, Chidozie Awaziem and uncapped Kingsley Ehizibue will be now expected to battle for the rightback position for the matches in Austria.
Awaziem, for one, stood in for Shehu at last year’s AFCON in Egypt.
