Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, is doubtful for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against South Africa next week, after picking up an injury in Changchun Yatai’s 2-2 home draw against Tianjin Quanjin in a Chinese Super League clash on Wednesday.

Ighalo was replaced in 17th minute of the encounter by Lasse Vibe.

Nigeria will face Bafana Bafana at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on November 19.

Ighalo has been one of the key performers for the Super Eagles in recent outings, scoring six goals in his last three games for the three-time African champions.

Elche of Spain goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has already been ruled out of the game through injury, with Enyimba’s Theophilus Afelokhai already named as his replacement.
