Ighalo Suffers Injury, Ruled Out Of AFCON 2019 Qualifier Clash


Odion Ighalo, a Super Eagles striker, has been ruled out of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualification game against South Africa, TheCable reports.

 

Ighalo sustained a hamstring injury in Changchun Yatai’s game against Tianjin Quianjian on Wednesday.

 

The five-goal hero in the two-legged AFCON qualification games against Libya in October was stretchered off the pitch in the 16th minute.

 

Ighalo disclosed to TheCable that it’s a hamstring injury.

 

“I pulled my hamstring,” Ighalo said.

 

The extent of his hamstring will be determined after a scan which will be carried out later.

 

The Super Eagles will take on the Bafana Bafana on November 17 in Johannesburg.

 

It takes up to three weeks for a player to recover from a hamstring injury.
