      It is still too early to conclude on him. It may just be a minor injury. May God keep you in good health in Jesus name.

        Lets pray its a minor injury. If the description am seeing of his injury is true, hmmmm, hip injury has to do with muscles and muscles dont heal too soon. Lets pray for the young man, he has suffered enough he doesnt deserve another injury especially at a time like this. Each time he gets injured, we dont count days or months, we count years. I strongly pray and believe this one will not be like that by Gods grace. Wishing him a quick recovery.

    Obi get well soon.

  • Injury is part of the game,it could be that he was ruled out because he is not fully fit, so don’t mind media that say things just to attract traffic to their website,anyways I wish him(joel)quick recovery

  • nawao … best wishes

  • He’ll be fine. It’s just a precaution to get him fully fit. I don’t know if I’m the only one who’s happy that he needs some rest. He played a lot games this season which is quite unusual. I’m absolutely certain he will be ready for the WorldCup. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE#
