AS the D’ day approaches swiftly for the make or break World Cup match against the Dessert Warriors of Algeria on September 4, Super Eagles coach, Augustine Eguavoen is growing grey hairs over injuries among his star players.

Shaktar Donesk hitman, Julius Aghahowa had ruled himself out of the squad because of a nagging injury that had ruled him out of club matters. When Eguavoen was ruminating over missing the somersault specialist, Ifeanyi Udeze dropped yet another shocker that he might not be available for the crucial match because of injury.

Obafemi Martins was equally said to be nursing an injury, though his might not be too serious as to stop him from playing to see that Nigeria get the maximum points to put their World Cup journey on track. But Ifeanyi Udeze was categorical on Brila FM that he would not be available for the must win World Cup cracker. "It’s sad that I will not make the trip to Algeria for the World Cup because of an injury that I have been nursing.

The thought of not partaking is worrisome but I am hopeful that my colleagues are equal to the task". He said that his wish had always been for Nigeria to qualify for the World.

"I feel bad especially because of the precarious situation that we find ourselves in, right now", Udeze added. Nigeria is placed on same 15 points with Angola but trail on FIFA’s head to head rule. Sports Vanguard gathered that Eguavoen has chosen Faro, Portugal as camp to the team before the Algeria match.

The Eagles camped in Portugal before their bronze medal outing in the Nations Cup in Tunsia. Part of the team would be leaving Nigeria for Portugal at the weekend where they would be joined by professionals based in Europe for the September 4 match against Algeria.
