SCORENigeria can now report that the Super Eagles have suffered another late injury blow leading up to the 2023 AFCON as Real Sociedad striker Sadiq Umar has now also pulled out of the tournament.

 

Sadiq has suffered a knee injury and he will be out of action for at least three weeks.

 

Officials said he will now return to Spain to be attended to by his club medics.

 

 

He suffered the injury during Monday’s warm-up game against Guinea in Dubai

He failed to train fully with the rest of the Super Eagles squad yesterday and today.

 

This would have been the striker’s second AFCON after he also featured at the 2021 edition in Cameroon.

 

Victor Osimhen is now the only out-and-out striker on the Super Eagles squad before Sunday’s opening Group A clash against Equatorial Guinea.

 

Both Kelechi Iheanacho and Terem Moffi are only due in Abidjan by the weekend and so effectively ruled out of this game.
