More worries piling up for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, as shot topper Maduka Okoye joins Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen on the sidelines, after been subbed off early in Sparta Rotterdam’s 1-0 loss to Dutch Eridivisie defending champions, Ajax.
He was replaced in the 24th minute after he collided with an opponent. Shortly after Okoye was replaced, in-form striker Dusan Tadic scored the only goal that separated the teams at the Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel.
The result was Sparta Rotterdam’s second straight loss in the Dutch top-flight and it left them in the 16th spot with 10 points after 14 matches.
Whilst the injury appeared to be nothing serious, the duration of his absence hasn’t being confirmed yet, Super Eagles coach and Nigerians hopes he will return in time for the African Cup of Nation, as the aforesaid West African giant seek to claim a fourth title.
