Nigeria's back line suffered a potentially serious blow in their opening match, as it appears Godfrey Oboabona's tournament could be over.

If Oboabona's injury is serious enough to knock him out of the World Cup, he will join fellow Nigerian defender Uwa Elderson Echiejile, who suffered a muscle tear prior to the start of the tournament.
