Medics sweat on Super Eagles duo

30 December 2013, 13:03Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Medical team of the Super Eagles are sweating on the duo of Gambo Mohammed and Adeyinka Adedeji as the national side gets set for the 2014 Championship for African Nations.

Recently, four players have had knocks, two serious, two very negligible to the extent that the medics have said if the technical crew picks from there will be no medical issue at CHAN.

Those not on the watch list are Solomon ‘Cafu’ Kwambe, who had a good game against Gokana United on Saturday in Rivers State and Umar Zango, the Kano Pillars central defender, who did not make the trip to the Port Harcourt friendly.

Medically, these are not the best of times for Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Okechukwu Keshi, as the zero hour draws near for the naming of the 23-man squad for the CHAN African Nations Tourney starting January 11 in South Africa.

Serious worries have emerged over top striker Mohammed, who also did not travel for the game in Port Harcourt and Adedeji, who travelled for the game and was listed to start only to cop a hamstring injury while warming up for the start of proceedings.

The medics have however not given up on the two players, who incidentally have a similar case, but chances are 50-50, as the date for the naming of the final squad for the championship draws near.
