Leicester City midfielder Wilfried Ndidi has reportedly suffered a hamstring injury which could potentially rule him out of Nigeria’s World Cup campaign. The 21-year-old has been one of the Super Eagles’ top performers of late and national team coach Gernot Rohr faces a huge decision to make, if the midfielder is deemed unfit for the summer World Cup.
Speaking after the Foxes’ 5-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, manager Claude Puel discussed the result whilst confirming that Ndidi has sustained a muscular problem, he said: “The red card was harsh. It was a battle between two players, both making contact. It happened during a crazy five minutes with the injury to Ndidi that left the team so imbalanced. I’m feeling bad for him. It’s a hamstring injury. I hope it’s not bad and he can make the World Cup.”
