Abuja - The Flying Eagles are sweating on the fitness of star forward Musa Yahaya, who is nursing a knee injury he suffered in a warm-up match in Ghana.
According to the media officer of the team, Sam Audu, the Tottenham Hotspur youth star is expected to undergo a scan to determine the extent of the injury he suffered when he was dangerously tackled in the Flying Eagles second friendly against Ghana on Wednesday.
The injury forced him out of the match in the 39th minute.
U17 world champion Yahaya, who scored in the Flying Eagles first match against the Black Satellites, did not join the rest of the squad at the gym at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja Friday morning.
