Aaron Samuel Likely To Miss Egypt Clash

Published on: 24 March 2016

CSKA Moscow striker Aaron Samuel is the latest injury worry for Nigeria after he limped out of a tactical training session Thursday evening in Kaduna.

However, it is left to be seen if the big striker could shrug off this knock in time for the match against Egypt Friday evening.

Nigeria have already lost defenders Kenneth Omeruo and Leon Balogun to injuries leading to Friday’s AFCON qualifier against Egypt in Kaduna.

Reports in Germany say Balogun has resumed training for his club Mainz 05, but it still looks very much like he has missed out on both legs of the qualifiers.
