Super Eagles goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali has given an update on the injury he suffered during Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Cameroon in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.

Nwabali was substituted in the 80th minute for Francis Uzoho after a collision with Georges-Kevin N’Koudou left him in pain.

Speaking to the media after the game, the Chippa United F.C. goalie said he was still feeling some pain, but he would have to wait for the doctor’s report.

Super Eagles manager Jose Peseiro claimed the team’s medical staff was yet to assess the extent of Nwabali’s injury but was hopeful he will feature for Nigeria in the quarter-finals.

The Super Eagles defeated their arch-rivals Cameroon with two goals from Ademola Lookman, who opened the scoring in the 36th minute after Victor Osimhen found him inside the box.

Lookman eventually sealed the win when he poached home to win it 2-0 for the three-time champions.

The Super Eagles will face Angola at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium on Friday for a place in the semi-finals.

The team will be hoping to continue their winning streak and secure a spot in the next round of the tournament.

AFCON tournament has been full of surprises and exciting moments so far, and the Super Eagles have been a standout team.

With their impressive performance in the group stage and their victory over Cameroon, the team has shown that they are a force to be reckoned with.
