Oboabona to miss Nigeria vs Bosnia game
Nigerian defender, Godfrey Oboabona will likely miss Nigeria’s second world cup game against Bosnia Herzegovina. Oboabona sustained a foot injury after an Iranian player landed on his foot, in the Country’s first world cup match on Monday. He has since not trained with the rest of the team.
Oboabona has formed a formidable partnership with Kenneth Omeruo over the past 18 months and his injury will disrupt what has been considered Nigeria’s most reliable defence partnership at the moment.
Obaobona’s loss is however Joseph Yobo’s gain as the youngster’s injury has paved way for the captain to reach his 100 caps milestone.
