Ikechukwu Ezenwa Injured as Kwara United hold Enyimba to 1-1 draw in Ilorin

Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa picked up an injury as his club Enyimba played out a 1-1 draw against Kwara United in a rescheduled Nigeria Professional Football League match day 16 encounter in Ilorin on Wednesday. Ezenwa collided with his teammate Andrew Abalogu in the 61st minute and received treatment before he was replaced by Ghanaian Fatau Dauda six minutes later.

The former FC IfeanyiUbah goalie who is expected to be named in Nigeria’s squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will hope the injury is not serious enough to prevent him from making it to the Mundial. Enyimba netted the opener through veteran midfielder Ikechukwu Ibenegbu in the ninth minute. Stephen Alfred of Kwara United however equalized six minutes after the break, powering in a low drive from the edge of the area.
