Super Eagles Get Double injury Boost Ahead of Cameroon Clash


The Super Eagles captain, William Troost-Ekong and midfielder Alhassan Yusuf have returned to full team training, in what is a massive boost ahead of Saturday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations showdown against Cameroon.

The duo trained with the rest of the squad at the Police College, Cocody, Abidjan on Wednesday night.

Troost-Ekong missed the Super Eagles’ 1-0 victory against the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau on Monday due to a knee injury.

The PAOK Salonica centre-back was replaced in the starting line-up by Kenneth Omeruo.

Yusuf sustained a thigh injury in Nigeria’s opening game against Equatorial Guinea.

The game was his first competitive appearance for the Super Eagles.

The Royal Antwerp of Belgium missed Nigeria’s last two games against Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea-Bissau due to the setback.
