Ndidi Post Match Celebration Aggravates Hamstring Injury

Written By: SD Reporter


Leicester City Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is a major injury doubt for the Premier League outfit ahead of their game against West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

Ndidi was injured towards the end of Nigeria’s 1-0 win over Zambia in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers, the win that secured them a spot at next year World Cup in Russia.

The 20 year old was taken out of the pitch on a stretcher minutes before the final whistle was blown for medical attention after he fell down clutching the back of his thigh.

He made the situation when he ran back onto the pitch at the blast of the final whistle to join the rest of his teammates in the post-match celebration, ignoring the team doctors who were attending to him.

A test to determine the severity of the injury will however be conducted on him later Wednesday and an update on his fitness will be provided by coach Craig Shakespeare during his pre match conference most likely tomorrow.
