AFCON: They’ve some pain – Nigeria coach, Peseiro confirms two Super Eagles players injured

Head coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro has confirmed that two players in his squad are injured ahead of his side’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, quarter-final clash with Angola on Friday evening.

According to Peseiro, the two Super Eagles players are Bright Osayi-Samuel and Ahmed Musa.

The 63-year-old, who said this on Thursday, insisted that the duo are having some pain.

Peseiro, however, refused to rule out both players from Friday’s match between Nigeria and Angola.

Speaking with Channels Television’s English-based reporter Austin Okon Akpan, Peseiro said: “There is injury at this moment. Bright Osayi-Samuel and Ahmed Musa have some pain, but I think they will be ready for the match tomorrow [Friday].”

Osayi-Samuel has played for the Super Eagles at the AFCON, while Musa has been a non-playing substitute in four consecutive matches.
