Efe Am­brose re­places in­jured Omeruo

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Celtic de­fender Efe Am­brose will re­place in­jured Ken­neth Omeruo for friendlies against DR Congo and Cameroon.

Omeruo suf­fered a ham­string in­jury in a league match for his Turk­ish club Kasim­pasa this week and the sever­ity of this in­jury has yet to be as­cer­tained.

Ac­cord­ing to the NFF of­fi­cial Twit­ter han­dle, Am­brose will take Omeruo’s place in the Su­per Ea­gles for the test games in Bel­gium.

Ver­sa­tile Am­brose has played at right full­back for the Ea­gles, but to­wards the fi­nal days of for­mer coach Stephen Keshi he ap­peared to have fallen out of favour.

He is now likely to fight for a place in his more fa­mil­iar cen­tral de­fence role.

Efe Am­brose who is mak­ing a re­turn to the Su­per Ea­gles since 2014 was shown red at the week­end while in ac­tion for his Scot­tish club at the week­end.
