Fever Knocks Udoh Out Of Eagles’ Camp

Nigeria’s Glo Premier League record goalscorer Mfon Udoh has been released from the camp of the Super Eagles due to illness. The Eagles are preparing for next month’s 2017 AFCON qualifiers against Chad.
The Enyimba of Aba striker had reported to camp along with other invited players on Thursday but had to be excused from camp activities because of an illness that also sidelined him from his team’s Match Day 10 clash against Elkanemi Warriors in Aba on Wednesday.
Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi said Udoh would return to the team once he has fully recovered from his health challenges.
“Mfon Udoh is an important member of this team and he will be back once he has fully recovered”, Keshi revealed.
“He reported to camp so that the Super Eagles medics can assess and also advice him. They have asked him to take enough rest and avoid any strenuous activity so that his recovery can be faster and more comprehensive. Once he fully recovers, he will always get his chance with the team”, the Super Eagles Head Coach added.
Mfon Udoh set a new goals record in the Nigerian top flight last season, scoring 23 goals. And, with four goals already this season, he is among the Premier league top scorers after ten match Days.
