Injured Eagles winger Moses Simon ruled out for six-weeks

Super Eagles attacker, Moses Simon has been ruled out for six weeks after suffering an injury to the ligaments of the right ankle.
The Gent star, Moses got injured during a friendly game between his club and Nürnberg a week ago in Spain.

Simon’s injury is a big blow to his Yves Vanderhaeghe who won’t be able to count on the services of the winger for the upcoming Belgian First Division A match against Lokeren.


In addition, the Super Eagle will miss games against Antwerp, Club Brugge, AS Eupen and Sint-Truiden while he is doubtful to face Mechelen and Waasland-Beveren.

The injury sustained by the Eagles winger could also affect his fitness ahead of the FIFA World Cup holding in Russia.
