Alhassan Yusuf is ruled out; Jose Peseiro confirms ahead of Nigeria vs. Guinea Bissau match

Nigeria’s head coach, Jose Peseiro, has confirmed that Alhassan Yusuf won’t be available for the Super Eagles‘ next AFCON Group A game against Guinea Bissau on Monday. The player is dealing with a minor thigh injury, which also kept him out of the match against Cote d’Ivoire.

Nigeria’s win over AFCON host nation Cote d’Ivoire not only marked a significant victory but also provided the team with a crucial opportunity to await the full recovery of Antwerp star Alhassan Yusuf patiently.

There’s a growing likelihood that he will be fully ready for the Round of 16.

Yusuf cannot prepare for next match in person, he played two days before and he now has 48 hours
