Ndidi injury concern for Super Eagles World Cup qualifiers


Wilfred Ndidi has joined the injury list ahead of Nigeria’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.

Leicester City manager, Enzo Maresca revealed on Friday that the midfielder is suffering from a muscular injury and will be out action for an extended period.

“The only one is Wilf,” Maresca revealed in his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“That looks a bit more than tiredness as we thought at the beginning, so he probably has to stay out some days or weeks.

“It’s not an important problem, just a muscular problem that we thought was not important. It’s not big, but I think at least for some days or weeks he going to be out.”

Napoli forward Victor Osimhen has already been ruled out of the two matches due to a thigh injury.

Taiwo Awoniyi, Samuel Chukwueze and Semi Ajayi are all doubtful for the qualifiers.
