Nigeria goalkeeper Maduka Okoye has joined a host of injured Super Eagles players as the country prepares for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon in January.
Okoye suffered a shoulder injury in Sparta Rotterdam’s 1-0 loss to Ajax in Sunday’s Eredivisie encounter.
The 22-year-old was replaced in the 24th minute after he collided with an injury.
The extent of the injury remains unknown until the club’s assessment of the goalkeeper on Monday, which is today.
With about 40 days until the AFCON, Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, will hope to have the Eagles’ first-choice goalkeeper available for the tournament.
Nigeria are already without Napoli striker Victor Osimhen after he broke his cheekbone and eye socket following a gruesome clash of heads that necessitated surgery, and could be out of action until the end of February 2022.
The goalkeeper recently completed a permanent switch to the Premier League to join Watford on a five-and-a-half-year deal in January.
