The Eagles sensational player in a post on Monday confirmed the severity of the injury stating that “I have been ruled out of the rest of the tournament because of my injury. The doctor said I will be out for a month,” Faleye said.

You would recall that Faleye fell awkwardly on his arm, twisting it in the process as Nigeria chased an equalizer during the quarterfinal game which the Eagles came from behind to win 3-1 as it extended to the extra-time. Although he continued to play with a bandage strapped arm, but he was later subbed.
Meanwhile ahead of the Wednesday Semi-final cracker with Sudan, Ikechukwu Ezenwa- who was the Man of the Match against Angola- has said the CHAN Eagles have resolved to surpass Nigeria’s best outing in the competition by going all the way to the final in Morocco.
