Nigeria hope of winning the Africa Cup of Nations have suffered a major blow as Super Eagles' power playing forward, Emmanuel Emenike is a major doubt for Sunday's Africa Cup of Nations Cup final match against Bukina Faso
Emenike, who has netted four goals so far in the tournament did not train again on Friday, making it the second straight day Emenike has missed training.Inside sources has it on good authority, however that although the coaching crew would on Saturday issue a statement on the situation of the player, team doctors have already made it clear that having suffered a torn muscle, he would definitely NOT be available for the cracker against Burkina Faso.
Meanwhile, Victor Moses looks set for the match as he had a light workout on Friday.
The duo of Emenike and Moses cropped injuries during the 4-1 thrashing handed Mali Wednesday's semi final clash and have so far been the major injury concerns for Nigeria going into the final on Sunday.
