International friendly: Super Eagles duo Aina, Bonke doubtful for Ecuador’s clash

Ola Aina and Innocent Bonke of the Super Eagles are doubtful for Nigeria’s friendly against Ecuador’s La Tri on Thursday (Friday morning) in Nigeria.

Aina was injured during the team’s first training session in Dallas and was unable to participate in the 2-1 loss to Mexico on Sunday morning.

Innocent Bonke, a midfielder for Lorient, was injured in the game against Mexico.

At halftime, he was replaced by Kano Pillars’ Faisal Sanni.

On Monday night, the duo skipped the team’s grueling practice to do some light recovery of their own.

The Super Eagles will have their final practice session before the game on Tuesday at the Montclair State University pitch.

On Thursday evening, at 8 p.m. ET, Jose Peseiro’s team will face Ecuador at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison (1am on 3rd June in Nigeria).
