Few days after he withdrew from the team due to the decision of the French Government on quarantine, Nigeria’s Super Eagles and FC Nantes winger Moses Simon may be back in the team, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
Simon among other Africa players who are plying their trade in the French Ligue were all affected after the French government said all foreigners coming into the country must quarantine for at least 7 days.
The French sports ministry on Saturday opened the door for foreign players in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 to join their national teams for World Cup qualifiers outside the European Union, allowing them to forgo a quarantine upon their return.
“The Ministry of Sports confirms that international players returning from official competitions outside the EU with their national team, whether French or foreign, are exempt from the seven-day waiting period as long as they comply with a strict sanitary and medical protocol (bubble + daily PCR test on their return to their club),” the Sports Ministry said on Saturday.
“They will therefore be able to train and play without the application of a seven-day delay,” the statement reads.
RKC Genk of Belgium striker Paul Onuachu has been called up as a replacement for Simon.
