The Super Eagles today announced Wilfred Ndidi has quit their camp in Constantine, Algeria, and headed back to England after he was injured in training.
The nature of the injury was not disclosed, but it has ruled out the Leicester City midfielder from a series of friendlies against Algeria.
The Eagles play against a home-based Algerian team tomorrow evening before they battle the country’s main team Tuesday night in Oran.
Last season, Ndidi missed a good part of the campaign on account of a knee injury.
His form has been patchy for Premier League bottom club Leicester City on his return to action this term.
