Super Eagles will be at the 2023 AFCON without Wilfred Ndidi due to injury and already Antwerp midfielder Alhassan Yusuf has been drafted as a late replacement.
The defensive midfielder missed his team’s home win over Huddersfield Town Monday on account of this injury.
Solutionmediaz has gotten official confirmation from the Nigeria Football Federation that the Leicester City ace has pulled out of the Nigeria squad due to an injury he suffered while on club duties at Leicester City.
Both Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro as well as the team administrator have since contacted Alhassan Yusuf to report to the AFCON training camp in Dubai, which opened today.
Alhassan has yet to be capped by the Super Eagles despite his fine run in Belgium with double champions Antwerp.
He was only named on a 40-man provisional squad for the AFCON before his late call-up.
