The Rotherham United utility star took to social media to express his disappointment at missing out on the Egypt-bound Eagles squad but backed the team to make Nigeria proud at the tournament.

“Wishing my brothers the best of luck at the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations,” the 25-year-old, who made the initial 25-man provisional squad, wrote on his Instagram page.

“It’s been a privilege to have been part of this squad and as much as I’m gutted that I can’t make it I wish everyone linked with the Super Eagles the very best of luck this summer. I will be supporting the team until the end. Go and make Nigeria proud my brothers.”
