Ndidi to miss crunch AFCON qualifier against South Africa

Nigeria’s Super Eagles will be without influential midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, in the crunch Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against South Africa.

This is as a result of accumulated cautions.

Ndidi picked up a third booking in the 3-2 victory against Libya in Sfax, Tuesday

The result pushed Nigeria to the summit of Group E with nine points from a possible 12.

Ndidi had featured in all games by the three-time African champions.

Coach Gernot Rohr will be hoping to have skipper Mikel Obi back in time as a replacement.

Next up for the Super Eagles is a potentially–explosive duel with Bafana Bafana of South Africa in a top-of-the-table clash at Johannesburg’s Soccer City on 17th November.
