Wilfred Onyinye Ndidi won’t be on the field in the game between Nigeria and South Africa on 17th November in Johannesburg.
The Super Eagles midfielder has accumulated two yellow cards so far in the AFCON qualifiers.
The Leicester City central midfielder picked up a booking in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Libya in Sfax last night, which Nigeria won 3-2.
The result pushed the Super Eagles to the top of Group E with nine points from a possible 12, but that comes with a price as Ndidi won’t feature in the all-important game with South Africa.
Nigeria face a potentially–explosive duel with Bafana Bafana of South Africa in a top-of-the-table clash at Johannesburg’s Soccer City on 17th November.
