But, Ikeme will not resume not until after Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nation’s away match against Seychelles in Victoria in September.

The German tactician confirmed that Ikeme is expected to arrive Lagos on October 4, for Eagles’ third match in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, against Libya on October 10th which he would be one of the Nigerian team’s goalkeepers’ trainers.

Going to Seychelles for the Eagles’ upcoming fixture at the restart of the AFCON qualifiers could be asking too much from the leukaemia survivor, as it would mean him flying for ten hours, which Rohr says “is not conducive.”

He continued, “Ikeme has been excused from next weekend’s game and will make his debut in the Eagles’ dug  with Libya, for which he will land in Lagos six days before the match.”

Heading into that game, Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr confirmed that Ikeme will take the six-hour flight from London to Lagos, rather than start with next Friday’s second AFCON 2019 qualifier against Seychelles.
