Chidera Ezeh ruled out of Flying Eagles game

18 February 2015, 09:58Israel Ojoko

Accra - FC Porto forward Chidera Ezeh has been ruled out of the Flying Eagles second match against the Black Satellites of Ghana on Wednesday after he suffered a mild concussion in the first friendly.

Ezeh scored in a 2-2 draw with the Black Satellites on Monday at the Accra Sports Stadium, but he had to be replaced soon after when he was involved in a head clash and suffered a mild concussion.

He was replaced for the second half by Wikki Tourists striker Usman Hassan.

“Chidera Ezeh is okay now but he will not be involved in the second game against Ghana after he suffered a mild concussion as a precautionary measure,” said Flying Eagles team doctor Ozi Salami.

Defender Zaharadeen Bello will also be rested to ensure he does not further hurt his leg injury.

The Flying Eagles second warm-up against their Ghanaian counterparts will be played in Tema, on the outskirts of Accra, by 3pm local time, which is 4pm Nigerian time.

The match will be played an astro turf.

Both the Flying Eagles and Black Satellites are preparing for next month’s African Youth Championship in Senegal.

The Flying Eagles are in Group A, while Ghana, world champions in 2009 and third at the 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey, are in Group B.
