Super Eagles and Rizespor of Turkey defender Godfrey Oboabona has been ruled out of the team’s second Group F game against Bosnia on Saturday.
This sad piece of news was disclosed by the team’s media officer, Ben Alaiya on Tuesday.
“Godfrey Oboabona is not okay, AlRaiya told SL10.ng. “He’s not going to play the next game against Bosnia. During the match with Iran, an Iranian player tackled him badly, used his studs to make contacts with him.
“He has begun rehabilitation but did not train this evening.”
Eagles captain Joseph Yobo is expected to pair Kenneth Omeruo in the game which both teams will be desperate to win in a bid to qualify from Group F.
