Super Eagles Coach, Rohr Confirms Onazi’s Injury
Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed that Ogenyi Onazi has suffered a serious back injury on Thursday’s 1-1 draw against Senegal.
The stand in skipper was replaced by John Ogu in the first half and Rohr said afterwards that the midfielder would require a scan to ascertain the level of damage.
Rohr also suggested that Ahmed Musa could be carrying a knock after the Leicester City forward was substituted in the 75th minute.
