Apam to skip Venezuela tie



Centre-back Apam Onyekachi will not take part in Nigeria's international friendly game against Venezuela on November 15.

The 25-year-old defender sat out in Stade Rennais' 3-1 win at FC Nancy on Friday.

Rennais manager, Frederic Antonetti, instead picked the backline of Kevin Theophile Catherine, John Boye, Chris Mavinga and Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik, son of Andre Kana-Biyik.

An official of the Super Eagles told supersport.com that Apam has already ruled out himself from the trip to Miami in the USA for the game against Venezuela.

"He has called the coach (Stephen Keshi) to say he has suffered a fresh recurrence in his (thigh) injury. He didn't play for his team last night and that's why the coach has named more defenders in the team from the players in the local league for the game," supersport.com was informed.

The Enugu Rangers' man is reported to have limped off from training before his club's game at FC Nancy on Friday.

It is believed he has suffered a relapse in a thigh injury he has been nursing and could undergo a scan next week.

Apam has made seven appearances for Nigeria at senior level with the last being two years ago.
