Nigeria coach, Augustine Eguavon has revealed Samuel Chukwueze and Innocent Bonke might not be available for the second leg of the World Cup playoff tie against Ghana.
The duo were substituted in the first leg in Kumasi, but are yet to recover from the knocks.
Eguavon, addressing the media said though they are doubt for the game, he has enough men to ensure qualification on Tuesday night.
“Chukwueze had a scan, we are yet to receive the results, Bonke is not participating in today’s training session because he had a knock,” Eguavon revealed.
“Bonke worked really hard [in the first leg]. He overstretched himself. We know the boy worked really hard for the team. It’s 24 hours before the game. I don’t know what is going to happen, but the doctors are working on them, once the results are in, we will make a decision on them and we will know what will happen on the pitch tomorrow.
“But, there’s no need to worry, we have enough men to do the job,” he said.
The winner of the second leg will qualify to the FIFA World Cup to be staged in Qatar later this year.
