Ndidi Won’t Play DR Congo, England Friendlies


Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi is not in line to feature for the Super Eagles in upcoming international friendlies against DR Congo and England, in spite of his rapid recovery from a hamstring injury copped in action with his club.

Although Eagles’ doctors affirmed that the former Racing Genk of Belgium star is recovering faster than expected, the recovery is not enough to make him available for Monday’s clash with The Leopards in Port Harcourt and away to The Three Lions on June 2.

Details of this development have been provided by Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, who stressed that Ndidi has recovered faster than expected and will soon join full training in Uyo.
Ndidi is recovering from a hamstring injury and has been training on his own in Uyo since the World Cup camp opened and Ibitoye has said the player is moving ahead of schedule, which should make him fit enough for the Mundial in Russia.

“In a couple of days, he will join the full training. He is running well without any pains, he has recovered faster than we expected.

“He is now being loaded slowly and gradually to build his match fitness, but he will be ready for the World Cup,” Ibitoye disclosed.
