Super Eagles midfielder Joel Chukwuma Obi has suffered another injury which will keep him out of Torino’s Serie A clash with AC Milan on October 17.

Joel Obi received an invite from Coach Sunday Oliseh to play for Nigeria in a goalless draw against Tanzania in a 2017 AFCON qualifier match but had to be replaced because he could not make it due to an injury.


It was reported by Torino’s official website that the former Inter Milan player suffered a hamstring injury during a training session on Friday and will undergo a new scan in a week to determine the extent of the injury.

The first test showed lesion of the first/second grade at the rectus femoris of the right thigh..
