Innocent Bonke and Emmanuel Dennis are uncertain for Nigeria’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualification- AFCON against Sierra Leone’s Leone Stars.
On Monday night, the duo practiced separately from the rest of the team at the Moshood Abiola Stadium’s practice ground in Abuja.
Dennis has recently returned from an injury that kept him out of Watford’s final three games last season.
In the Super Eagles’ 1-0 loss to Ecuador last week, the dynamic forward came on as a second-half substitute.
Bonke is still recovering from an injury sustained in the first half of Nigeria’s friendly loss to Mexico.
Should both players be unable to recover in time for Thursday’s game, the squad has enogh cover in midfield and attack.
The match will take place at Abuja’s Moshood Abiola Stadium on Thursday.
