Ighalo Out Of Argentina- Nigeria Game Due To Injury

Ighalo confirmed that he will miss Nigeria’s upcoming matches against Algeria and Argentina due to injury.
The much-hyped international friendly between Argentina and Nigeria suffered a blow when it was announced that Super Eagles’ striker, Odion Ighalo, will not play in the match.

The Chanchung Yatai striker, who was on Monday named in the Super Eagles’ squad for their final 2018 World Cup qualifier away to Algeria on November 10, followed by a friendly against Argentina in Russia four days later, suffered a knock to his knee in Changchun’s latest match over the weekend and is set to be sidelined for approximately two weeks.
“I suffered a knee sprain (ligament) in our last game against Chongqing Dangdai Lifan FC on Sunday, I was able to finish the game because I thought it wasn’t serious, then I started feeling pains after the game,” Ighalo said.

“I will be out of action for 10-15 days, I won’t be able to play against Algeria and Argentina."
The biggest attraction in the game Leo Messi will also miss the game scheduled for Krasnodar in Russia on November 14.

The Barcelona hitman will play in the country’s first friendly match against Russia on November 11 in Moscow before flying back to Barcelona.
