Uchechi Daniel out of Olympic team qualifier

Nigeria and Leicester City attacking midfielder Uchechi Daniel (Pictured left) is ruled out of the Tanzania Nigeria first leg second round Olympic Games qualifier billed for this weekend in Dares Salam.

Uchechi suffered a muscle tear four minutes into the team’s international friendly against Costa Rica at the weekend.

“It’s sad considering the fact that we have a qualifier this weekend but that is football for you,” coach of the side, Austin Eguavoen stated while confirming the injury.

“We definitely would miss the services of Chima in the game against Tanzania but we have players that can fill the vacuum but surly we would miss him.”

Uchechi, who has played in all the team’s qualifying matches so far has scored three of the sixteen goals recorded by the team so far.

Media officer Arafat Aliu says Austin Eguavoen is expected to name Uchechi’s replacement on Wednesday.
