Super Eagles fans have taken to social media (Twitter) to wish full back Shehu Abdullahi who was injured in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Group B game between Nigeria and Burundi on Saturday.
The extent of the injury has been ascertained but it appears the defender might miss the next two games of the Super Falcons.
The Bursaspor defender was injured in Nigeria’s first game against the Swallows of Burundi.
An appreciative Shehu Abdullahi wrote via Social Media, “Thanks for the love Nigerians, I appreciate your amazing messages. I will be back soon! The most important thing, keep supporting us, we shall make you proud at the end and conquer Africa. I Love You All.”
Super Eagles next game is on Wednesday against Guinea with Chidozie Awaziem expected to start in the absence of Shehu Awaziem.
A win will see Nigeria progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.
