Wilfred Ndidi will be out of Nigeria’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying games against Ghana after suffering an injury in Thursday’s defeat to Rennes.
The the 25-year-old midfielder limped off in the 60th minute of Leicester City’s 2-1 loss to Rennes in an Europa Conference League match.
Ndidi is among the five midfielders called up by Super Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen for next week’s game in Kumasi, followed by the return fixture in Abuja on March 29, however,Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers has ruled him out of the game.
Rodgers was quoted by Leicestershire Live:
Wilfred Ndidi, we just have to assess. He picked up an injury that might keep him out for a few weeks, which is a shame…and Marc Albrighton had to come off.
Just as it looks like we’re getting players back… We’ve got a really good squad when they’re all available. It looks like we’ll get some back, but one or two might be out. We’ll have to see once the scans turn up later.
