Trabzonspor of Turkey midfielder, Eddy Ogenyi Onazi ‘s availability is now a doubt for Nigeria’s upcoming international matches against Algeria and Argentina.
Prior to today’s contest against Kayserispor, Trabzonspor medics had worked hard to get Onazi in top-top condition after he picked up a groin injury while on international duty with the Super Eagles on October 7.
The former Lazio star, Onazi, however, could not continue after 40 minutes after suffering a relapse and had to make way for José Sosa.
In the coming hours, Trabzonspor medics will carry out additional tests, which will determine his availability for the matches against the Desert Foxes and La Albiceleste.
Manager Gernot Rohr cannot count on the services of former Watford star Odion Ighalo who has withdrawn from the roster due to injury, while there are doubts about the fitness of John Ogu, and Moses Simon.
Meanwhile, German Budensliga side, Mainz have earlier declared fit and available, their star defender Leon Balogun.
Balogun was said to have been out injured and the lanky defender had an surgery two weeks ago. But the club’s medics have declared him fit and cleared him for the coming international fixtures.
Nigeria will face Algeria on November 10 before wrapping up their 2017 schedule against Argentina in Krasnodar four days later.
