The duo are not expected to make the Dream Team VI list for the Rio 2016 football event, their top official has confirmed
Last week, John Obi Mikel and Daniel Akpeyi were picked as Nigeria’s two overage players but the duo will not be considered for selection due to club commitment.
"Omeruo wanted to play but he has not sorted his contract issue with Chelsea who has gotten a new Coach Antonio Conte,” a reliable source told Sportmasta.
“Wilfred issue is on his club coach wanting Siasia to make the player a starter in his team which Siasia believed was a mere excuse not to release the defender.”
The source also dismissed claims that coach Samson Siasia has announced his final squad for the competition.
"Coach Samson Siasia has not made any release concerning the Dream Team VI final 18 squad for the Rio Olympics in America,” he continue.
“In fact he was sad to read the report on the online media. He has pleaded that sports reporters should wait for the appropriate quarters which is the Nigeria Football Federation to make the release.”
