Super Eagles and Chippa United first choice goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi remains a big doubt for their first ever Nedbank cup quarter final against Jomo Cosmos coming up on Saturday.
Akpeyi who was in goal when Nigeria took on Desert Foxes of Algeria in the Russia 2018 qualifier in Uyo, hobbled through the Chippa United loss to Kaizer Chiefs last weekend.
Since Monday, Akpeyi has been working separately from the squad under the supervision of the team physio.
“Dan is training under the watchful eye of the physio and will probably need fitness tests before he can be passed fit to play at the weekend‚” the club spokeperson Luthado Zibeko added.
If the injury is prolonged it will be a big blow to Nigeria ahead of the AFCON qualifier against South Africa.
