Setback Hits Super Eagles Prior to AFCON 2023

The Super Eagles’ pursuit of a fourth Africa Cup of Nations title has hit a major setback just months before the tournament. Taiwo Awoniyi, a key forward for the Eagles, will be sidelined for at least four months due to an injury sustained in the World Cup qualifying game against Lesotho on November 16, 2023.

Nottingham Forest, Awoniyi’s club, confirmed the news on November 23, expressing support for his recovery after undergoing groin surgery. Despite his significant contributions to Forest’s performance, including crucial goals last season, Awoniyi faces a challenging road back to fitness.
