Super Eagles new invitee Gift Orban is injured and a doubt for Nigeria’s AFCON qualifier vs Sao Tome and Principe.
Orban is among 23-Eagles in camp for the last Africa Cup of Nations qualifying encounter vs the True Patriots on Sunday September 10, 2023 at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.
The Gent forward reportedly sustained injury in Friday’s training session and so was rested to avoid further harm to see if he will be back in time for the AFCON qualifier.
The new Super Eagles invitee sat out of training on Saturday evening as 22 players trained under the watchful eyes of Head Coach Jose Peseiro and his assistants.
If he recovers in time, Gift Orban will join Victor Boniface and Jordan Torunarigha, as the uncapped Eagles looking forward to their International bow vs Sao Tome and Principe.
