Babatunde Michael’s hopes of featuring for the Super Eagles in the two legged AFCON qualifiers against Sudan is in doubt as the midfielder is feared injured.
The Volyn wide man only recently returned from a broken wrist picked up at the World Cup, but limped off injured in their cup game against Dnipro after 23 minutes.
On Friday, while his teammates secured a 2-2 draw at home to Vorskla in the league, he wasn’t listed for the game fuelling speculations his injury might be worse than initially feared.
So far he has made two appearances this season against Dynamo Kiev and Metalurh Zaporizhya the last of which came on the 22nd of last month.
The 21-year-old Michael was a shock inclusion in Stephen Keshi’s World Cup squad, but he justified his inclusion in the team with a strong game against Bosnia and Argentina.
However, his tournament was cut short after a shot from his teammate Ogenyi Onazi fractured his wrist in the Eagles last group game against Argentina.
