    Good news and I hope this sweet news never change… Albeit, I expected ndidi to recover faster than stated due to his age and due to the spirit of his enthusiasm to play in his first World Cup…
    May you all never relapse in your recovery process. Ameen.

    Great news. Fly Super Eagles.

  • Good enough, he should use this period to rest and recover after been overworked this season.

    I hope all our players take things easy at this point in time, the focus should be on the WC.

    Only a few players can do anything special at this point to convince Rohr to change his mind on the players he needs for the main stage.

    • This news is sure to make a lot of fans go to bed safe in the knowledge that crisis for the team is averted.

      Good news Ndidi, we all wish you speedy recovery most of all those who single mindedly believe that your position in the team is indispensable and irreplaceable at the present time.

    If ndidi could not make it to mundial, i believe will have onazi, etebo and ogu . i believe they are good replacement too. ndidi is a great midfielder but let’s be looking for a good player in respect of plan B.

      we should not short change ourselves by taking the risk of an half fit player to the mundial.
