Don Silas from Daily Post Report that Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr has received a huge injury boost ahead of his side’s 2019 African Cup of Nations, AFCON, qualifying fixture against South Africa at the FNB Stadium on November 17.
Rohr’s side will in the next few days welcome back Stoke City star, Oghenekaro Etebo to full fitness after the midfielder suffered an hamstring injury while on international duty with the Super Eagles against Libya last month.
Providing an update on Etebo’s injury, Stoke City manager, Gary Rowett told the club’s official website on Thursday: ”We have had a couple of knocks and niggles this week, but I will be keeping my cards close to my chest until kick-off.
Silas Added that “There are some who are close like Sam Clucas and Etebo, but what we have to do is make sure we don’t bring them back too early and put them at any risk.
”There are decisions I am going to have to make and there are situations that we will have to monitor over the next 24, 48 hours.”
Rohr’s men head to the game after defeating Libya 3-2 in their last game, while South Africa played 1-1 draw with Seychelles at home.
Nigeria is on top of the group with nine points from four fixtures, while South Africa is in second place with eight points from the same number of games.
