Nigeria’s central defender Kenneth Omeruo has confirmed that he would be out of the Super Eagles’ African Cup of Nations qualifying game against Sierra Leone this month.
The CD Leganes player who confirmed this through his verified Twitter handle, said he would sit out of the competitive football action for at least two weeks due to a hamstring injury he sustained while in action for Leganes on Sunday, and was replaced in the 48th minute.
Earlier on, an unconfirmed report had surface online that the 27-year-old is back in training for Leganes, but such statement has been refuted by the player himself.
Meanwhile, Omeruo took to his Twitter handle to denounce such statement. In his words, he said: “Please, get your facts right before publishing articles to mislead people. Don’t do that with my name. I am out for two weeks and not less.”
Omeruo has so far made seven league appearances this season for Leganes in the Segunda division.
An important date in November 13 is now set to come too soon for the player.
