Austin Eguavoen, the interim manager of the Super Eagles, has described Wilfred Ndidi as a “essential player” in the national team.
This was said by Eguavoen at a media conference in Abuja on Wednesday, ahead of Nigeria’s 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff versus Ghana on Friday in Kumasi.
Ndidi will miss the match owing to an injury he suffered while playing for Leicester City.
However, Eguavoen has recently said that Ndidi’s absence will be noticed minimally when Nigeria takes against the Black Stars.
“We wish Ndidi a speedy recovery. He’s an important player for the national team. I know how important he is to us but his absence isn’t going to change anything,” he said.
“We have a couple of players who can play in that position. The philosophy will not change, style of play will not change, only personnel will change.”
He added, “Till that day I’m not going to tell you who will play in that position. We’ve a whole lot to pick from and get what we want. There is so much at stake. Getting the world cup ticket is our target and we hope to get it. We know we have to fight for it because Ghana wants it as much as we do. But we must try and get over the line.”
