SAN FRANCISCO, November 08, (THEWILL) – Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has been ruled out of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualification game against South Africa.
Ighalo sustained a hamstring injury in Changchun Yatai’s game against Tianjin Quianjian on Wednesday.
The five-goal hero in the two-legged AFCON qualification games against Libya in October was stretchered off the pitch in the 16th minute.
The extent of his hamstring will be determined after a scan which will be carried out later.
The Super Eagles will take on the Bafana Bafana on November 17 in Johannesburg.
