Super Eagles’ midfielder was on Thursday injured in his Leicester 2-1 loss at Stade Rennes in the second leg of their Europa Conference League match.
The injury is being celebrated by Ghanaian media outlets, hoping it would affect the Super Eagles’ outing in the back-to-back World Cup play-off next weekend.
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed the unfortunate news of the injury.
Though the extent of the injury is yet to be known, it seemed the combative midfielder suffered the hitch around the medial ligament in his knee.
“Marc Albrighton has a groin injury and Wilfred Ndidi is block tackle so he injured the medial ligament in his knee so will see how that is,” Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers told BT Sports.
Ndidi has been ever-present for the three-time Africa champions since making debut against DR Congo in 2015.
Ghana will host Nigeria in the first leg of the 2022 World Cup Playoffs on 25th March 2022 with the return leg in Nigeria to follow four days later.
