Nigeria U20 lose striker Chidera Ezeh for second leg friendly against Ghana U20

FC Porto forward Chidera Ezeh has been ruled out of the Flying Eagles second match against the Black Satellites on Wednesday after he suffered a mild concussion in the first match.

Ezeh scored in a 2-2 draw with the Black Satellites on Monday at the Accra Sports Stadium, but he had to be replaced soon after when he was involved in a head clash and suffered a mild concussion.

He was replaced for the second half by Wikki Tourists striker Usman Hassan.

“Chidera Ezeh is okay now but he will not be involved in the second game against Ghana after he suffered a mild concussion as a precautionary measure,” said Flying Eagles team doctor Ozi Salami.

Defender Zaharadeen Bello will also be rested to ensure he does not further hurt his leg injury.

Both teams are using the friendly to prepare for the upcoming 2015 African Youth Championship in Senegal next month.
