Turkish champions, Fenerbahce are sweating on the fitness of Emmanuel Emenike ahead of the Istanbul derby against Beikta.
The Super Eagles striker will be assessed by club medics in the next 24 hours to know whether or not he would be on parade at the Recep Tayyip Erdoðan Stadyumu after picking up injury during Tuesday training.
The 27 – year old limped out of the workout after feeling pains in the left groin, and remains a doubt for the game on Sunday.
With only 1 goal in 10 appearances for club and country since the season began, Emenike has had his worst start to the season since he arrived in Europe in 2009.
He has managed only one start in the last four matches played by Fenerbahce in the Super Lig.
It would be recalled that the Nigeria international was on duty against Sudan in the last Eagles’2015 African Cup of Nations qualifier in Abuja.
