CD Feirense and Super Eagles star Oghenekaro Etebo will later today undergo a medical scan on his left knee after leaving the pitch against Vitoria Guimaraes due to the pains in the knee.

Etebo went down unchallenged clutching his left knee and groaning in pains against Vitoria Guimaraes during the weekend, a situation that lead to his substitution in their 0-0 draw.

The scan to discover the severity of the injury was not carried out immediately due to the swollen nature of the knee, and a source close to the player revealed it will be done today.

” There are fears it could be worse than what many think. He went down unchallenged, but for now nothing is certain until the scan is done”, a source told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” We are hopeful for the best, even though we fear the worst. He is a strong lad so that in it’s own could aid his recovery from this setback if at all it is severe”.
