Both players didn’t play against England at Wembley. “It’s Ola Aina and Mikel Agu,” Rohr told KweseESPN just before the team made their way to the airport for the friendly match with England. “They will be on standby. We go with 23 players in England and training camp in Austria. If we have some problems or injures like happened four years ago when Elderson was injured, they will be on standby for that.

Nigeria play their last official friendly match against Czech Republic on June 6 before heading out to the World Cup in Russia.
