The Super Eagles of Nigeria have suffered a huge blow to their squad that will face the Ghana Black Stars for next week’s 2022 World Cup playoff on March 25 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi as their star Wilfred Ndidi has sustained a medial ligament injury.

The Super Eagles may be without Wilfred Ndidi against Ghana after he sustained an injury on Thursday night.

Ndidi hobbled off in the 60th minute of Leicester City’s 2-1 defeat at Rennes in the UEFA Europa League.

Foxes coach, Brendan Rodgers speaking after the game, confirmed the Super Eagles midfielder may have damaged his ligament.

Ndidi has a blocked tackle, so, it is his medial ligament and his knee. We will see how that is,” Rodgers told BT Sports.

Medial ligament damage on average takes six weeks to heal, according to research.

However, if not as bad as it currently looks, the 25-year-old may be back in a week.
