AFCON: Alhassan Yusuf to miss Super Eagles-Elephant clash

The coach of the Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro, has confirmed that Alhassan Yusuf is out of the match against host Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire on Thursday at the Stade Olympique Alassan Ouattara Stadium, Abidjan.

Peseiro confirmed this on Wednesday at the team’s news conference ahead of Nigeria’s second match at the ongoing African Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire.

According to the coach, the Royal Antwerp FC of Belgium defensive midfielder will only be in contention in the third match against Guinea-Bissau.

The coach, however, confirmed that Napoli FC of Italy striker and reigning African Footballer of the Year Victor Osimhen would be available for the match against Cote d’Ivoire on Thursday.

The Portuguese also revealed that Leicester City of England playmaker Kelechi Iheanacho was close to playing. Terem Moffi, OC Nice FC of France striker, was catching up with the rest of the squad as expected.
