Turkey based Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has been knocked out of Nigeria’s back-to-back games against Egypt in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers due to injury.
Omeruo’s club, Kasimpasa, informed the Nigeria Football Federation that the defender was down with a groin injury that could sideline him for the next two weeks.
Super Eagles’ team administrator, Dayo Enebi, told thenff.com that this development had already been communicated to Head Coach Samson Siasia and the medical team.
“Omeruo’s injury and subsequent withdrawal from the Egypt games has been communicated to the coaches and the medics,” Enebi said
“The player is disappointed with his injury setback because he has been looking forward to this game with a lot of optimism. Expectedly, the coaches were also unhappy but they have wished him a quick recovery,” he added.
