Shehu Abdullahi Set To Return To Super Eagles Team.
Shehu Abdullahi has promised to return to the Super Eagles team still campaigning for honours in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The player was stretched out in Nigeria’s opening 1-0 defeat of Burundi last Saturday.
There are indications that he may miss rest of the tournament due to injury, but the player in a tweet on Monday promised to return in time for the tournament.
In the tweeter, he said that he would be back soon, urging Nigerians to continue supporting them.
“Thanks for the love Nigerians, I appreciate your amazing messages. I will be back soon! The most important thing, keep supporting us, we shall make you proud at the end and conquer Africa.”
Abdullahi, who was replaced by Chidozie Awaziem, is believed to be in fine form and would soon return.
Although Nigeria medics did not place a timeframe on his full recovery, media officer Toyin Ibitoye told Goal that the right-back would be sidelined for Wednesday’s showdown with Guinea in Alexandria.
“Shehu is fine but may need just a few days to be back to 100%.”
