Kara Mbodji is set to miss the international friendly between Nigeria and Senegal later this month due to injury.

The Teranga Lions and Super Eagles will clash in a friendly at the Hive Stadium in London on March 23.

And Senegal coach Aliou Cisse will be unable to count on the services of Mbodji, according to Jourdesport.

The 27-year-old has been struggling with a knee injury since returning from duty with the national team at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Mbodji has been unable to participate in full training with his Belgian club Anderlecht and missed their 3-2 loss at Mechelen this past weekend.

He is also expected to be unavailable for their UEFA Europa League match at APOEL on Thursday night and will need roughly 10 days to recover and resume full training.
