NGA vs CAR: 4 Key Players Of The Super Eagles That Could Miss This World Cup Qualifiers Fixture

The Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to welcome the Wild Beasts of the Central African Republic to the Teslim Balogun Stadium for their third World Cup qualifiers game in Lagos.

The Super Eagles recorded victories in their first two matches against Liberia and Cape Verde and could make it three wins in a row on Thursday, 07 October 2021.

Some Key key players of Gernot Rohr's team could miss this fixture due to injuries and they include:

1. Terem Moffi

Terem Moffi plies his trade with the French Ligue 1 side Lorient as a striker and has been in great form for his team. He was included in the squad before now but picked up an injury in their weekend game against Clermont last weekend.

2. Wilfred Ndidi

Wilfred Ndidi is another big miss for the Super Eagles after picking up an injury while playing for his club Leicester City in the English Premier League. He is a defensive midfielder and one of the strongholds in the middle of the Park.

3. Oghenekaro Etebo

Etebo is playing club football with the newly-promoted side in the English Premier League Watford FC. He was outstanding for his club until he picked up an injury during one of their games last month. He will be out of action for three to four months due to the extent of the injury.

4. Alex Iwobi

Alex Iwobi is a great midfielder that is playing for another English Premier League club Everton FC since leaving Arsenal. He was unavailable during their match against Manchester United on Saturday due to injury. He will as well miss this outing tomorrow.
