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.
