Joel Obi: NFF Quash Torino Star’s Injury Reports

Super Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye has dismissed reports over the availability of Joel Obi for the upcoming friendlies against Poland and Serbia.
Recent reports have indicated that the midfielder Joel Obi, who plies his trade in the Italian Serie A for Torino, is injured.

According to a report on AllNigeriaSoccer, Ibitoye said it was only a tactical decision by Torino manager Walter Mazzarri to omit him from the squad vs Roma.

”We will wait for official notification because normally when you invite a player and he is not able to come because of injury the doctor of the club will write to the NFF that the player is injured,” Ibitoye said.

”They will send the details of the injury to confirm that he can’t make it. We will wait for official confirmation from Tyronne’s club.

”For Joel Obi, he is okay, we still got in touch with him yesterday. He was just rested for their last game. He is fine, he has sent in his travel itinerary so we are expecting him to come,” he added.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) official also stated that he was not aware that ADO Den Haag defender Tyronne Ebuehi was an injury doubt for the two friendlies.

The Super Eagles will be playing against Serbia and Poland during the upcoming FIFA international break as part of Nigeria’s preparations for the 2018 World Cup.
