Former Nigeria international Julius Aghahowa has said the injury to Super Eagles midfielder duo Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo is something to think about.
Ndidi and Etebo were left out of the Eagles team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup double qualifying game against the Central African Republic due to injury.
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers revealed that Ndidi will be out for four to five weeks, while Etebo could be out for the rest of the year.

And reacting to the absence of both, Premier League star Aghahowa, speaking on Brila FM, said: “That’s a huge blow and something to worry about. When you have players who play regularly for the first team, they start the game all the time and now you have this number of injured players, it is a huge blow to the team.
“I know that the coach will definitely look for alternatives, he will find a replacement for them as quickly as possible because we have a good number of players who are entering the ranks at the moment. But the only problem is that they haven’t had enough playing time to make the team.
“But it’s also an opportunity for new players to show what they can do for the team.”
Apart from Ndidi and Etebo, Lorient forward Terem Moffi will not be part of the qualifying squad after injuring himself at the weekend.
