The doctor of French club Nice will join up with Nigeria international defender Onyekachi Apam at the Eagles London camp to re-assess the playerâ€™s knee injury, officials have told MTNFootball.com.
A top NFF official informed MTNFootball.com: â€œThe doctor of Nice will be with Apam in London to have another look at the injury of the defender.
â€œHe told us that he could have played with the injury and still make the final squad to the World Cup, but he does not wish to do so. He will prefer to be 100% fit before he stakes his claim for a place on the plane to South Africa.â€
Apam trained alone when the Eagles worked out for two days in Abuja, on Friday and Saturday.
He is unlikely to be picked for Tuesdayâ€™s warm_up game against Saudi Arabia in Austria.
