Injury Rules Ogenyi Onazi Out Of Libya Clash – Etebo Set To Take His Place In Midfield


Trabzonspor midfielder Ogenyi Onazi has been ruled out of Nigeria’s AFCON 2019 Qualifiers tie against Libya tomorrow as he presently struggling with an injury picked up in yesterday’s training.


Onazi started the session with the rest of the players but had to leave midway through it after complaining of discomfort arising from a knock picked up in their first session.

His absence has opened the door for Stoke City forward Oghenekaro Etebo to start against Libya tomorrow in midfield alongside Wilfred Ndidi with Alex Iwobi handed a more advanced role behind the main striker Odion Ighalo.

Yesterday sources close to Onazi said it was just a minor knock but it appears a bit worse than initially feared as he also missed today’s session which is ongoing now behind close doors at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, venue of the game.
