Babatunde’s hand inadvertently blocked the ferocious shot of Ogenyi Onazi which was goal-bound and it twisted his arm.

Stephen Keshi confirmed in a post match that the player was going for surgery and may not be lucky to feature in Nigeria’s remaining matches of the Brazil World Cup.

‘’It is sad that we may not see him play again in the World Cup. He is going for surgery. It is bad”, Keshi said, agonizingly.
