Omeruo In Injury Scare Ahead AFCON 2019

Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr will wait anxiously to get news on Kenneth Omeruo after the defender picked up an injury in Leganes 2-1 away defeat at Huesca on Saturday, reports Completesports.com.

Omeruo was replaced by Ezequeil Munoz in the 52nd minute of the encounter after picking up an injury.
