Etebo excluded from Las Palmas squad to face Real Madrid

Super Eagles midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo has been excluded for the Las Palmas squad selected to feature against Real Madrid in a La Liga matchday 30 fixture billed for the Gran Canaria Arena.

The Pio-Pio manager Paco Jémez did not include the 22-year-old in the 18-man squad released on Friday, set aside to tackle the Los Blancos.

Meanwhile, Rio 2016 Olympics star Imoh Ezekiel was named in the team list.

Etebo, who was sidelined from action for the Super Eagles in their friendly clash against Serbia on Tuesday, reportedly failed to make the cut because he declined to train with the Las Palmas team during the international break, but rather chose to join the Eagles camp in London.

The versatile midfielder, who is on loan from CD Feirense,  has been quite impressive in the La Liga side’s colours this season.
