Super Eagles defender, Shehu Abdullahi, is disappointed he won’t play a part in Tuesday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Libya in Sfax, Tunisia due to injury, Completesportsnigeria. com reports.
Abdullahi picked up the injury in the early part of the Super Eagles matchday-three 4-0 win against the Mediterranean Knights at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo on Saturday and was replaced by Ola Aina.
He has battled to stay fit in recent months as he only returned to action for his Turkish club, Bursaspor due to injury.
Abdullahi also missed the Super Eagles 2019 AFCON matchday two qualifier against Seychelles as a result of injury.
He joins Trabzonspor of Turkey midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi who sustained an achilles injury in training on Thursday n the injury list ahead of the game.
The duo will not travel with the team to Tunisia for the game as they are expected to return to their clubs to continue treatment on the injuries.
“Great to get the 3 points and help the team. Unfortunately my injury has ruled me out of the next game, but I’m sure my Super Eagles will continue to soar! 🇳🇬,” reads a tweet on Abdullahi’s Twitter handle.
Nigeria move to second position in Group E with six points following the win against Libya on Saturday, one less than South Africa’s who beat the group’s whipping boys Seychelles 6-0 in Johannesburg.

I wish you speedy recovery bro. CSN, what time is the match on Tuesday?
God bless Nigeria!!!
Shehu is evidently better than Ola Aina. Though am also happy that Aina was at least able to get enough game time this time around, I pray John Ogu too can have a chance soon. He has waited for so long. Wishing you a quick recovery brother. We love you.
Musa Mohammed remains the best right back for Super Eagles at the moment.
