By Adeboye Amosu:
Nigeria midfielder, Oghenekaro Peter Etebo is a doubt for Spanish club, Las Palmas’ Saturday’s LaLiga clash against Eibar at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Etebo, according to a statement on Las Palmas official website, did not train with his teammates on Tuesday due to a muscle problem.


“Peter Etebo, did not participate in the team’s afternoon training due to muscle discomfort. He has undergone physiotherapy treatments by the medical and recovery services of the club,” reads the statement.

“Etebo, as a precaution, was also absent in the evening training of the yellow team, which was focused work on the visit to Ipurua, the last away game of the season.”

The former Warri Wolves player played for the entire 90 minutes in Las Palmas’ last league game, a 1-0 home loss to Getafe.

The midfielder joined Las Palmas on loan in January from Portuguese club, CD Feirense.

He joined the list of Nigerian players who are on the treatment table ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Tyronne Ebuehi are not currently fit to step on the pitch, while centre-back, Leon Balogun and Henry Onyekuru have just recovered from injury.

    Why is it now that our players are in good form scoring goals for their respective club that some are getting injured 36days to the World cup . God please grant our boys huge recovery. It now seems to me like Etebo is becoming a fan of Joel Obi.
