Eagles get Omeruo boost against Sudan

Nigeria have been handed an injury boost with CD Leganes center back, Kenneth Omeruo, getting the all-clear from the physiotherapists to face Sudan after he was substituted in the closing minutes against Egypt due to a minor complaint.

Kenneth Omeruo, who suffered a minor injury in the closing minutes against Egypt, participated in full training for a second straight day so there is no indication yet that the former Chelsea man won't be available for selection on Saturday.

However, Alanyaspor central defender, Chidozie Awaziem has all but been ruled out of the clash against the Falcons.

Augustine Eguavoen says Chidozie Awaziem has been out of action at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon because of an ankle injury and not Covid-19.

The Alanyaspor star was not included in the Super Eagles' squad that silenced Egypt in the opening game at the Roumde Adjia Stadium in Garoua.

More importantly, he was not present at the team’s training on Wednesday and Thursday as they prepare for today’s fixture against Sudan.

That sparked insinuations that the former FC Porto man may have contracted Covid-19 – a rumour that was not confirmed, nor denied, the Super Eagles’ technical crew.

However, Eguavoen cleared the air on the player's absence during Friday’s pre-match conference ahead of their showdown with Sudan.
