Amoo May Miss Eagles’ 2023 AFCON Qualifiers, Friendlies Due To Injury

Copenhagen FC winger Akinkunmi Amoo will likely not be part of the Super Eagles squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in June, as well as the upcoming friendlies against Mexico and Ecuador due to injury.

Copenhagen coach Jess Thorup confirmed that the club’s former Under-19 Boys League star will not play for them again this season due to a sprain in his thigh.

Amoo has not played for the club since March, and has made only two appearances for them since he joined from Hammarby in January this year.

“Amoo has got a sprain in the back thigh and is, as it looks now, out for the rest of the season,” Thorup said in quotes relayed by bold.dk.

The talented 19-year-old got his first call up to the senior national team in March for the two-legged 2022 World Cup playoff against the Black Stars of Ghana in March.

He, however, did not get any minute under his belt in both matches.
