The Super Eagles of Nigeria star Kevin Akpoguma returned to action for German Bundesliga giants Hoffenheim football club on Monday night, in their goalless draw against Bayer 04 Leverkusen at Prezero Arena, but suffered a fresh injury, as he was forced off the pitch towards the end of the game.
The Germany-born defender was given his first starting role since January 19th by his team head coach Sebastian HoeneB, and he was able to impress, as he won a lot of tackles on the pitch, and also made a lot of Clearances to help his team keep a clean sheet.
Akpoguma started in the team's defence line alongside Chris Richards, Sessegnon, and Stefan Posch, and they were all outstanding for the host, but the Super Eagles star was replaced in the 88th minutes after colliding with Bayer 04 Leverkusen star Wendell.
The Nigerian international suffered an injury in January 19th against Freiburg FC, and the injury has made him to miss nothing less than 15 matches for club and country, with his last appearance for Nigeria was in the international friendly match against Algeria national team in Austria late last year.
Coach Sebastian HoeneB will now be looking forward to hearing good news about the Nigerian's minor injury, and he'll be looking forward to having him back very soon.
