Germany-based striker Taiwo Awoniyi has added to the woes of Nigeria ahead of today’s U23 AFCON semi-final against hosts Senegal in Dakar.
The match, which will decide one of tickets for next year’s Rio Olympics, will kick off by 4pm Nigerian time at the Leopold Sedar Senghor Stadium in Dakar with Nigeria missing suspended skipper Azubuike Okechukwu and injured Stanley Dimgba.
Nigeria coach coach Samson Siasia has further disclosed Liverpool loanee Awoniyi has now added to the injury woes of the team.
“Two important players are out and (Taiwo) Awoniyi is also injured,” Siasia announced.
The team have also not received any money since they departed Nigeria last month for a training camp in The Gambia.
