Highly rated 19 year old AS Roma Nigerian right full back Nura Abdullahi has revealed the reasons why he was unable to join up with the Super Eagles in London few months ago.
Nura was called up by coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr for the friendly game against Senegal in London as exclusively revealed by Owngoalnigeria.com two months ago.
However according to Nura he suffered an injury setback which made his club turn down the invitation, so he can focus on his rehabilitation as the injury came few months after his return from a long injury lay off.
” I was called up for the game against Senegal in London, contact was made between my club and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), but I suffered a set back in my return from injury. Hence I couldn’t honour the call up”, Nura told popular Kaduna journalist Mohammed Suleiman in an interview monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com.
” I’m still not full fit that is why I didn’t take part in the exhibition game organised by Moses Simon in Kaduna, I still have some gym session left before I will be given the all clear to return to training “, he concluded.
