Super Eagles and Lorient forward, Terem Moffi, is a doubt for Nigeria’s friendlies following an ankle injury as his club recorded a 0-0 draw with Reims in Saturday’s Ligue 1 outing.
reports that having bagged a brace last time out against Brest, the Nigerian was named in the Merlucciidaes’ starting lineup against the Red and Whites. Sadly, he could only play for 25 minutes after picking an ankle knock following a challenge from Julien Ponceau. He was subsequently replaced by Ibrahima Kone as the keenly contested fixture ended on a no winner, no vanquished note inside Stade du Moustoir.
Prior to this encounter, the 23-year-old forward had scored eight goals for Lorient and hoped to add to his goal tally in the ongoing campaign.
Should this setback keep him on the sidelines for weeks, he could miss Nigeria’s international friendlies against Costa Rica and Portugal in November.
