Moses, Yobo doubtful for Ethiopia tie



The Nigerian duo of Victor Moses and Joseph Yobo could be left out of their Afcon Group C clash with Ethiopia in Rustenburg on Tuesday.

Moses, 22, made his debut at the Africa Cup of Nations against Zambia but showed signs of still struggling with his hamstring.

The Chelsea attacking winger played for 78 minutes in the game against Zambia before he was substituted for Brown Ideye and is yet to recover from the injury, according to head coach, Stephen Keshi.

Captain of the Super Eagles, Yobo is also a huge doubt owing to an ankle injury after missing the 1-1 draw with Zambia in Nelspruit on Friday.

"Victor Moses is still under observation. He's been training but not at 100 percent right now. Same goes for Joseph Yobo who missed the last game," said Keshi.

But the Nigerian manager is not ruling out both players from the crucial game against Ethiopia.

"They still have a good chance of making the squad for the game as they have been training with the team. But if they are not healthy enough we will seek other options," he said.

Supersport.com was also informed that Warri Wolves' defender, Azubuike Egwuekwe, has recovered from illness that has kept him out of the Nigerian squad.

Nigeria's Super Eagles need an outright win against their Ethiopian counterparts, the Walya Antelopes, in their last group game to have any chance of advancing to the quarterfinals.
