The Super Eagles have suffered another major injury blow ahead of next month’s AFCON after Paul Onuachu copped an injury that could rule him out of action for the next four weeks.

The 27 -year old Nigerian suffered a hamstring injury during Genk’s 1-1 draw with Royal Antwerp in Belgium on Sunday.

He joins the likes of Watford midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo, who will not feature at the AFCON just as officials hope Osimhen will be fully recovered to be part of the tournament in Cameroon.

Onuachu, who is widely regarded as a cover for Victor Osimhen, was forced out of Sunday’s clash in the 70th minute. Ike Ugbo replaced him.

Genk has not put an exact timeframe on his return but Onuachu has been ruled out for up to four weeks, with the Nations Cup set to kick off in 19 days’ time.

“He suffered a muscle tear. I already had the feeling that I had to replace him, but he said he could continue.” Genk manager, Bernd Storck, told Belgian newspaper, Sporza.

“And then he suffered a hamstring injury during a spurt. He will not be able to play for the next three, four weeks.”

The striker had opened the scoring for Genk in the first half before the injury.

He has netted 12 goals in the league this season after he scored 35 goals in all competitions in the last campaign.

“As a man, you have to get a job. How would you leave responsibilities for a woman for 9years and you’re expecting her not to sleep around?” she remarked.

The topic of infidelity has dominated the Nigerian social media space, following the recent cases of paternity fraud.

The social media influencer had earlier said she walked out of her marriage because of domestic violence and not cheating.

According to her, cheating is not enough reason for divorce.

She said, “I left my marriage because of domestic violence, my husband is not a cheat. Sometimes we women have to accept we are the problem.”
