Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has said his greatest regret heading to the 2018 World Cup is the absence of goalkeeper Carl Ikeme.

Ikeme is undergoing treatment for acute Leukemia.

The Wolves man was in goal for the Nigeria at the start of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers in Zambia, October 2016.

“My biggest regret is the absence of Carl,” admitted Rohr, who visited the goalkeeper in hospital in England.

However, Ikeme will take the traditional kick-off at Wembley when Nigeria tackle England in a friendly on June 2.

Francis Uzoho, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Dele Ajiboye and Daniel Akpeyi are battling for the team’s goal keeping spot.
