The Baggies manager, Carlos Corberan said after the game that Ajayi is nursing an ankle injury.

“It’s difficult to face a situation when you are having a lot of injuries,” Corberan was quoted by the club’s official website.

“It’s true that we’ve had a period where we haven’t had some of the attacking players who are important for us.

“Semi Ajayi, when he was playing in the last ten minutes of the Plymouth game, he turned his ankle. He suffered the same injury as he had before the international break.”

The Super Eagles will face the Crocodiles of Lesotho at the Godswill Akpabio International, Uyo on Friday, November 17.
