Nigeria vs Ghana: Super Eagles hit with double injury blow ahead of Abuja clash


Nigeria coach, Augustine Eguavoen may be forced into making two changes to the team he put out to face Ghana in the first leg of their 2022 World Cup playoff last week.

This is because Innocent Bonke picked up a hamstring injury during the game and is expected to be out of action for up to three weeks, according to OwnGoalNigeria.

Bonke himself had replaced the injured Wilfred Ndidi in the Super Eagles squad.

Villarreal winger, Samuel Chukwueze, could only be unavailable for the reverse fixture at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

Chukuwueze also suffered a muscular injury during the match in Kumasi last Friday.

Oghenekaro Etebo or Onyeka Frank will start against the Black Stars in Bonke’s absence, while Eguavoen has Dennis Emmanuel and Ademola Lookman to choose from if Chukwueze fails to recover.

The first leg of the tie ended goalless.
