However, Sparta did not indicate the nature of the injury sustained by Okoye.


As at the time of writing this report the hame was in the 59th minute with Ajax 1-0 ahead.

This will be a worrying news for the technical crew of the Super Eagles, as they are still coming to terms with the injury suffered by Victor Osimhen.

After fracturing his eye socket and cheekbone, he underwent surgery and has been ruled out of next year’s AFCON.

    Osimehn gone…are we about to loose another key member????

  • Get well soon okoye, enter uzoho . Super Eagles is too big of a team to be worried when one or two of its players are down. This was not the case before. It is the current handlers of the team that have made the team over dependent on certain players while ignoring the immense talents out there. Lets give opportunities to others to fit into the team and we may just have a pleasant surprise.
