The extent of Ndidi’s injury is yet to be known but it appears to be around the medial ligament in his knee.

“Wilfred Ndidi is a block tackle, so he injured the medial ligament in his knee so will see how that is,” Rodgers said after the game.

Ndidi’s potential absence will be a big blow for Super Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen as Nigeria face a crucial 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying games against Ghana.

Ndidi played every minute of the Super Eagles’ games at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations where they were knocked out by Tunisia in the Round of 16.

Nonetheless, should Ndidi miss the two games, Super Eagles have Oghenekaro Etebo and Frank Onyeka to pick for the games against Ghana and also Ogenyi Onazi on the standby and may be drafted in for the games.
