Super Eagles Defender Suffers Injury In Leganes 3-0 Loss To Sevilla

The Nigerian international had to make way for compatriot Chidozie Awaziem in just seven minutes. It is feared that Omeruo may have injured his Achilles tendon, causing him to miss Leganes' upcoming game against the Espanyol base team. The timing of his injury isn't ideal considering that he's one of the center-backs of choice and Los Pepineros is struggling to stay afloat in the top Spanish league with just five games until the end of the 2019-2020 season. This season, Omeruo has played 22 league games when he was a substitute and found the net against Real Sociedad in February. Sevilla scored two goals with Oliver Torres in the 23rd and 35th minute before Munir El Haddadi scored the goal eight minutes before the end. With 25 points from 33 games, Javier Aguirre's team is nine points from security.
