Bloemfontein - Pocket-sized Super Eagles midfielder,
Chrisantus Ejike Uzoenyi has confessed that he almost passed out when Black
Stars defender, Kwabena Adusei elbowed him leading to a
minor concoction mid-way into the first half of the CHAN semi-final clash
between Nigeria and Ghana.
Team medics described Uzoenyi’s condition at the time as Cortical
Artery seizure, noting that it took quite a while to get his pulse back from
the leg region.
“It was scary but we thank God, it didn’t degenerate more
than that and the player’s recovery rate was phenomenal”, one of the medical
official attached to the team noted.
The player himself was quoted by Team Media Officer, Ben
Alaiya, as saying he momentarily passed out and didn’t know what was happening
until he was stretchered out for treatment.
“That player wanted to kill me with that vicious elbow and I
was blank and did not know where I was until I started hearing noises, but I
was determined to continue that was why I was rushing back to the pitch. But I
think it was God that saved my life because some lesser cases have resulted in
