The Nigerian squad at the 2014 World Cup has been dealt a huge blow following news that defender Godfrey Obaobona will miss the rest of the tournament.
Obaobona was forced off due to injury against Iran, and reportedly cut his toe making it impossible for him to wear boots.
Media Officer, Ben Alaiya confirmed that Oboabona had been ruled out but noted that Chief coach Keshi was still nursing hopes that the defender could still recover.
“Now, Oboabona and Gabriel Reuben are out of the games; Omeruo is just managing and we have as substitutes such players as Babatunde Michael, Michael Uchebo, Azubuike Egwuekwe and Kunle Odunlami. These are players we may field against Bosnia and Argentina. We are in trouble”, a distraught member of the team reportedly said.
