Why Aribo was not invited for Super Eagles vs Algeria friendly

Southampton midfielder Joe Aribo requested to be left out of Nigeria’s friendlies against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.

Aribo has been involved consistently with the Super Eagles since making his debut against Ukraine in October 2019.

The former Rangers player has also impressed at his new club, Southampton.

The 26-year-old was surprisingly left out of Nigeria’s squad for the international friendlies against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.

“Aribo is very much part of Jose Peseiro’s plans,” a Super Eagles official told SCORE Nigeria.

“He was not dropped for the matches against Algeria, the player asked to be excused for him to take some rest after his recent transfer to the Premier League in England.”

The Super Eagles will take on Algeria in the first on Friday at the Mohamed Maloiul Stadium, Constantine.

The second friendly is billed for the Miloud Hadefi Stadium, Oran next week Tuesday.
