Sadiq doubtful for Super Eagles vs Algeria friendly. After suffering an injury while playing for his club Real Sociedad on Sunday night, Umar Sadiq might not be able to play for Nigeria in their forthcoming international friendly against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.
Real Sociedad lost to Getafe 2-1, and in the first half, Sadiq suffered an unexpected injury.
In the 38th minute, France’s Mohamed-Ali Cho came on to replace the striker.
To ascertain the severity of the injuries, the 25-year-old is anticipated to undergo testing on Monday (today).
Imanol Alguacil, the coach of Real Sociedad, expressed his concern following the game, saying, “The image has been unpleasant, but we must wait for the tests.”
In the final days of the summer transfer window, Sadiq transferred from another LaLiga team, Almeria, to Real Sociedad. He scored on his debut against Atletico Madrid.
He will be absent from Nigeria’s upcoming international friendly against Algeria on September 27 in Oran due to an injury.
Victor Osimhen, another striker, is already out of the match after getting hurt during Napoli’s match against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League last week.
