Nigeria Midfielder Ogenyi Onazi could face a lengthy spell of at least eight weeks on the sideline following an injury he suffered in Monday's game against France at the FIFA World Cup in brazil.
The Lazio midfielder broke his tibia and fibula from the horror tackle of Blaise Matuidi in a second-round match which Nigeria lost two-nil.
There has been no official word from the Nigerian camp after they were eliminated from the world cup by les bleus of France.
Onazi now has the lower part of his left leg in a cast in the wake of Matuidi's challenge.
The Frenchman has since apologised to Onazi in the aftermath of his horrific tackle.
