Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was missing from Leicester City’s matchday squad on New Year’s Day. The 27 year old’s participation at the AFCON 2023 is now in doubt.

It’s also worth mentioning that Ndidi’s Super Eagles and Leicester City teammate Kelechi Iheanacho is also in the recovery room; as he has missed the Foxes’ last two games.

Ndidi and Iheanacho were named in Jose Peseiro’s AFCON 2023 squad last week; and despite their injuries, they joined the national team as they made the trip to Abu Dhabi for their training camp.

With that in mind, Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro might have to explore other options in case Ndidi and Iheanacho aren’t fit for Africa’s biggest football competition, which begins in less than two weeks.

The Portuguese coach has set his sights on Royal Antwerp’s Yusuf Alhassan as a potential replacement for Ndidi. The 23 year old has been in sensational form for the Belgian outfit in recent weeks, registering three assists in his last four games.
