Captain of the Super Eagles, Ahmed Musa will miss the highly anticipated friendly against Algeria on September 27.

The skipper was part of the initial 25-man squad but is now expected to miss the tie with injury.

According to a medical bulletin issued by Sivasspor via social media, Musa has a fracture in his left arm, effectively ruling him out of the trip to Oran.

The 29-year-old was substituted in the 19th minute of Sivasspor’s 2-1 loss to Ankaragücü in a Turkish Super Lig encounter at the Eryaman Stadyumu on Sunday evening.

Musa received treatment on the pitch but had to be taken off due to an injury to his left arm.

The Skipper joins Leon Balogun and Henry Onyekuru on the sidelines.

However, Balogun and Onyekuru have been replaced by Valentine Ozornwafor and Emmanuel Dennis respectively.
