Super Eagles and Lazio midfielder Ogeny Onazi is set to be out for 10 days from an injury he sustained in Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Swaziland.

Onazi was part of the Super Eagles team that beat Swaziland in the second leg of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers to progress to the third round.

Lazio confirmed the news on their official website.

"The tests which were carried out showed the presence of grade one strain of the abductor longus in the right thigh," the club announced on Friday, November 20.

"He will start specialized treatment today, and the recovery time will be determined after additional tests in a week or 10 days."

Lazio will take on Palermo this weekend as action resumes in the Italian top flight following the international break.
