U-20 AFCON Flying Eagles star, Daga ruled out for rest of competition. Daniel Daga, a crucial midfielder for Nigeria, will miss the remainder of the 2023 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Daga was hurt in the Flying Eagles’ 1-0 loss to the Senegalese Cubs in their opening game.
The Flying Eagles’ most recent three matches—against Egypt, Mozambique, and Uganda—have been lost without the Dakkada FC player.
There were hopes that he would be ready for the Flying Eagles’ semi-final match against Gambia, but an evaluation of the injury has since determined that he will miss the game.
On Monday, the Flying Eagles will compete against the Gambia’s Young Scorpions for a spot in the championship game (today).
Around 6 o’clock Nigerian time, the match in the Cairo International Stadium will begin.
