Super Eagles forward Victor Boniface confirmed on social media that he will miss 2023 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria due to injury.
This is a major blow for Nigeria five days to the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
Boniface who is one of the very best forwards in the world at the moment is ruled out of AFCON 2023.
“Good luck guys. I wish you all the best at AFCON”, the Bayer Leverkusen star wrote on his Instagram handle.
According to reports, Victor Boniface picked up a groin injury in training with Super Eagles and could not participate in the tournament in Côte d’Ivoire.
Jose Peseiro and his staff decided to let the player leave Super Eagles camp as he is now heading back to Germany.
In addition, OGC Nice’s Terem Moffi is among the players who could replace in the squad Boniface who has 18 goals and 6 assists in 23 appearances to his name this season.
