Super Eagles winger Moses Simon was injured in a practice game with his Belgian club KAA Gent with initial reports suggesting it could be serious.
Moses Simon was forced out of this afternoon’s game against German second division FC Nurnberg after just 24 minutes.
He was rushed to hospital for further scans on his calf and ankle, according to Het Laatste Nieuws.
The flying winger was a big part of Nigeria’s qualification for this year’s World Cup in Russia.
He scored the Eagles goal in a 1-1 draw with Cameroon in Yaounde in September.
Injury kept him out of the November games against Algeria and Argentina.
