Gusau visits injured Troost-Ekong, Sanusi in Europe

President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Ibrahim Gusau this week visited injured Super Eagles duo, William Troost-Ekong and Zaidu Sanusi at their base in Europe.

Gusau during the visit held discussion with Troost-Ekong on the importance of the upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa and Benin Republic.

The PAOK Salonica of Greece defender is currently recuperating from the injury he sustained at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The centre-back won the Player of the Tournament award in Cote d’Ivoire.

The centre-back is expected to be fit in time for the World Cup qualifiers in June.

Sanusi sustained an injury while in action for his Portuguese club FC Porto just few days after the AFCON 2023 finals.

The left-back is expected to return to action at the start of next season.

It would be recalled that Gusau also visited another injured player Moses Simon last weekend.

Simon was injured in the Super Eagles friendly against Mali last month.
