Super Eagles of Nigeria and Genk of Belgium striker, Paul Onuachu have been ruled out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Onuachu picked up a hamstring injury in Genk’s 1-1 home draw against Royal Antwerp on Sunday. The former FC Midtjylland star had opened the scoring for Genk in the first half before the injury.
The 27-year-old was replaced by Ike Ugbo 20 minutes from time after picking up the injury.
Onuachu’s injury is another major blow to Nigeria’s chances of making a huge impact at the competition after Victor Osimhen was ruled out of the competition last month.
Onuachu is now expected to spend around a month on the sidelines as he recuperates.
