Super Eagles Goalkeeper Okoye Suffers Injury



Nigerian goalkeeper Maduka Okoye has suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday’s Eredivisie encounter in which Sparta Rotterdam lost 1-0 to Ajax.

He was replaced in the 24th minute after he collided with an opponent and the mishap comes as a worry for the Super Eagles, who are getting ready to feature at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon in January.

Although the severity of the knock has not been determined, Okoye’s injury is more of a concern for Gernot Rohr’s side after they lost star striker Victor Osimhen to a head injury last Sunday.
