Awaziem was unavailable for the Super Eagles’ 1-0 win over Egypt on Tuesday. The 25-year-old was not even included in the matchday squad, with interim boss Austin Eguavoen confirming after the match that he had a slight knock. Nigeria are unbeaten in all but one of their last six competitive games, but are without a win against Egypt in any of the last six competitive matches, dating back to a 1-0 victory in 2019. It was hoped that the defender would be available on Saturday, but he missed the team’s recovery training on Wednesday. He was replaced late in the game by Chidera Ejuke, while Sadiq Umar came on for Taiwo Awoniyi. And with Nigeria playing again on Saturday, Awaziem is in a race against time to be involved. Kick off is 5pm West African time. In his absence, Kenneth Omeruo partnered with William Troost-Ekong in the centre of defence to keep a clean sheet against Mohammed Salah and co. He, however, advised the technical crew to work on the players to be ruthless and clinical in the 18-yard box.

Although Omeruo also picked up a knock during the match, he is expected to be fit for the game against Sudan after he was pictured in training. For Umar, maybe first time nerves in such a big stage, he gave me some excuses after the game and we will talk to him later. Related Topics: .
