Shehu Abdullahi could Miss Rest of Nigeria’s AFCON Campaign with Hamstring Injury
Shehu Abdullahi could miss the remainder of Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations outing with a hamstring injury.
The Bursaspor defender was stretchered out in the first half and was replaced by Chidozie Awaziem in the Super Eagles 1-0 triumph over Burundi.
Abdullahi had shrugged off an injury-plagued season with his Turkish topflight outfit to make Gernot Rohr’s squad to the biennial African football showpiece.
Although Nigeria medics did not place a timeframe on his full recovery, media officer Toyin Ibitoye told Goal that the right-back would be sidelined for Wednesday’s showdown with Guinea in Alexandria.
