Injury scare in Nigeria training camp as Awaziem limps off


FC Nantes centre-back Chidozie Awaziem suffered a knock in Nigeria’s training session at their Uyo camp on Saturday, understands.

The 21-year-old came off worse in a challenge with Leicester City man Kelechi Iheanacho at the Nest of Champions before hobbling off the pitch.

Awaziem who is highly-rated and tipped to make Nigeria’s 23-man team to the World Cup in Russia appeared to have sprained his ankle.

The defender had ice pack strapped to his ankle as he could no longer continue in the training session.

It is uncertain now if Awaziem will be a doubt for the friendly match against DR Congo in Port Harcourt on Monday.
