Super Eagles head coach Genort Rohr recently release his 24-man squad list ahead of their crunch tie against Libya in next week’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
The Frenchman is hoping to have his invited players in great form before the highly-speculated clash with the North African side.
Meanwhile, some of Rohr’s invited players were in action for their respective clubs in yesterday’s Uefa Champions League matches but it wasn’t a great outing for most of them as they were thrashed by their opponents.
Here is a rundown of how each player perform for their respective clubs in last night’s Champions League fixtures
The Everton loanee was on from start to finish but he could do nothing to stop his Turkish side Galatasaray from losing to Portuguese giants Porto.
The 22-year-old, who was in Rohr’s list to face Libya, was lively for the away side but he failed to find the back of the net despite going the distance.
The Super Eagles defender hasn’t been fairing well with Porto since the start of the season. He has found game-time too hard to get and he was an unused substitute against Galatasaray.
The 21-year-old Eagles defender was made to watch the encounter from the substitute bench as he continues to seek for regular action ahead of the Libya encounter.
The Nigerian international started at the left-back position for Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow but failed to help the team keep a clean sheet against Bundesliga side Schalke 04.
Lokomotiv Moscow, who were at home, conceded the only goal of the game in the 88th minute as Weston McKennie rose highest to nod home the ball.
On Tuesday, Super Eagles outcast Olanrewaju Kayode made his Champions League debut for Shakhtar Donetsk in a 2-2 draw against Ligue 1 side Olympic Lyon.
The Nigerian striker replaced Junior Moraes in the 83rd minute of the encounter.
How Morata Ends Goal Drought In Slim Chelsea Victory
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has ended his barrenness in front of goal after he scored the only goal of the game to give his side a slim 1-0 victory over Hungarian champions Videoton in their Europa League clash on Thursday night.
The Blues dominated proceedings from the blast of the whistle but lacked the ruthlessness and cutting edge to convert the chances that came their way during the Matchday 2 clash.
Chelsea struggled to break the deadlock until their star forward made a 54th minute entrance into the game at the expense of the ineffective Pedro Rodriguez.
Spanish international forward Pedro was making his first start since he suffered a concussion in their away game against Greek side PAOK on Matchday 1.
Brazilian national team star Willian got the only goal of the game to give Chelsea a 1-0 victory in the Europa League opener.
The introduction of Hazard injected the much needed verve and invention into the Chelsea attack and it was no surprise that he had a hand in Morata’s goal.
He was involved in the buildup as Willian teed up Morata to score from six yards out in the 70th minute thereby ending his goal drought dating back to the second week of the season.
It was his first goal in the Europa League after his 14th shot on target in the competition.
The slim victory stretches Chelsea’s less at the top of Group L to three points after a return of two victories from two games.
