Nigeria captain Chibuzor Okonkwo (pictured left) has been ruled out of Saturday’s WAFU Cup Final against Togo.

The defender injured his ankle in the latter stages of Nigeria’s 4-0 group stage win over Niger, and missed Thursday’s tension-soaked semifinal against Ghana.

Scans showed that the defender had bruised a nerve in his left ankle.
However, the Super Eagles medical team say he will be fit for the June 1 match up against Argentina.

Okonkwo is the only player ruled out of the final. Although there are other slight niggles, team medics say there are no major issues.

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
