AFCON 2023: Sadiq remains doubtful for Equatorial Guinea clash


Umar Sadiq may now likely miss the Super Eagles Group A opener against Equatorial Guinea at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Sadiq has missed the team’s last two training sessions and is not likely to be fit for the clash with Nzalang Nacional.

The Real Sociedad star cut a disappointed figure as he sat out training at the Ecole Nationale de la Police, Abidjan on Thursday night.

22 players took part in training session under the supervision of head coach, Jose Peseiro.

Sadiq is expected to be available for Nigeria’s second Group B game against hosts Cote d’Ivoire next Tuesday.


Bundesliga striker, Victor Boniface is already ruled out of the competition.

His replacement, Terem Moffi, will join the rest of the Super Eagles squad on Sunday.
