The German dropped  domestic  league  top scorer Junior Lokosa, Standard Liege midfielder Uche Agbo,  Lokomotiv Plovdiv defender Stephen Eze and Plateau United Dele Ajiboye.  Twenty-three players will make the final squad.
Meanwhile, Rohr left Abuja with 24 players   for London ahead of Saturday’s friendly match  against  England  at Wembley.

The NFF said in a statement that  Mikel  Obi, Ogenyi Onazi,  Kenneth Omeruo,  Ahmed Musa, Bryan Idowu, Tyronne Ebuehi, Francis Uzoho, Daniel Akpeyi,  Ikechukwu Ezenwa,  Ola Aina, Leon Balogun, Shehu Abdullahi, Joel Obi, William Troost-Ekong, Chidozie Awaziem and  Elderson Echiejile were on the chartered flight that conveyed the players to London.

 The statement  confirmed that  Moses Simon, who was earlier ruled out of the  tournament due to injury, will undergo further medical checks in the UK to ascertain the seriousness of his injury.

The body added that Victor Moses would join the team in London.

Nigeria play Argentina, Croatia and Iceland in the group stage of the June 14 to July 15 tournament in Russia.

Eze expressed his sadness on Twitter.

“Sadly, my journey to the World Cup ends here. I am disappointed to not make the final squad, but I want to thank our coach and management for the opportunity! I wish my team the best & hope to join in celebrations when they bring the trophy home! GO #NIGERIA! #DefendLikeEze,” he wrote.
