AFCON 2023: Moffi replaces injured Boniface in Super Eagles’ squad

Terem Moffi

Terem Moffi has replaced injured Victor Boniface in Nigeria’s squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Boniface is ruled out of the competition after sustaining a groin injury in training.

The Bayer Leverkusen star is now expected to be sidelined for six weeks.

The 23-year-old will now fly back to Germany for treatment on his injury.

Moffi’s inclusion is now subject to the approval of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and his Ligue 1 club, OGC Nice.

He was a shock omission on the final squad after consistency and goals in Ligue 1 since 2020.
