Paul Onuachu is a doubt for Nigeria’s first-leg World Cup qualifier against Central African Republic with a ankle injury.

Onuachu who is one of four Forwards called up by Gernot Rohr for the two-legged affair against CAR picked up the injury during the team’s training session on Tuesday morning.
The 27 year-old had a swollen ankle and was exempted from the team’s second training session on the same day at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
Another player who is ruled out of the game is goalkeeper Maduka Okoye.
Okoye arrived the Super Eagles camp in Lagos, three days after the camp opened.
Rohr himself ruled out any chance of the Netherlands based goalie suiting up in the first-leg of the qualifiers.
This leaves the Coach with Francis Uzoho and Daniel Akpeyi to pick from as first choice when the sides meet in the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
Nigeria hosts CAR on Thursday in the first-leg of the double header before travelling to Cameroon for the return leg.
