And with Nigeria playing again on Saturday, Awaziem is in a race against time to be involved. In his absence, Kenneth Omeruo partnered with William Troost-Ekong in the centre of defence to keep a clean sheet against Mohammed Salah and co.

Although Omeruo also picked up a knock during the match, he is expected to be fit for the game against Sudan after he was pictured in training.
