Super Eagles goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, has suffered what appears to be a nasty injury after a collision with an opposing player on Sunday.
Akpeyi was the goalie for his club, Kaizer Chiefs, in their ABSA Premier League tie against Bidvest Wits at the FNB Stadium when the unfortunate incident happened late in the first half.
According to Premium Times, Nigerian goalkeeper had dealt with a cross from the left side of the pitch but then collided with the leg of an onrushing Bidvest player.
The game had to be halted for a while as he received medical attention on the field but his injury was obviously serious and he had to be stretchered out for three game to continue.
In addition, Kaizer Chiefs also lost Sunday’s game, a development which could badly affect their league title aspirations.
Chiefs were runaway leaders at the top of the ABSA Premiership before the coronavirus lock down. But following the restart, Amakhosi have picked up just five points out of a possible 15 to allow defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns close up the gap.
For now, it is not clear how long Akpeyi would be out, but it appears his season is over with just two games to go in this present campaign.
