Nantes forward and Nigeria international, Moses Simon who has been replaced in the Super Eagles squad for the final round of the qualifying fixtures the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations because of the ban imposed by the league organisers in France is optimistic that there will be a right balance between club and country.
Following the traveling restrictions in France, it means continent footballers playing in the top two divisions of French football will be stopped from leaving Europe for international duties, Sports247 understands.
The challenge is to find the right balance because I understand where the clubs are coming from due to the strict covid rules in France,” Simon told BBC Sport Africa.
“My club Nantes is struggling and not in a good place, so it’s difficult for the team to allow any of our players to travel.
“It’s actually a sad and disappointing situation because I love to play for my country.”
In search of a win to seal automatic qualification, the Super Eagles travel to Benin on 27 March before hosting Lesotho in Lagos three days later.
