Another Super Eagles striker, Sadiq Umar, has been ruled out of the 2023 African Cup of Nations and replaced.

This is coming after striker Victor Boniface was ruled out of the competition which is scheduled to start tomorrow, January 13 in Ivory Coast.

26-year-old Umar picked up a knee injury in Nigeria’s 2-0 friendly defeat to the Syli Stars of Guinea on Monday.

However, in a Friday statement posted on X by the official Super Eagles account, it was announced that Paul Onuachu will replace Sadiq Umar.

“Sadiq Umar is out of the AFCON 2023 squad due to injury and Paul Onuachu replaces him.”

Onuachu was at the AFCON 2019 finals in Egypt.
