AFCON: Boniface replacement Approved By CAF

Terem Moffi from French club Nice will take the place of injured forward Victor Boniface in Nigeria’s squad for the Africa Cup of Nations finals, the country’s football federation said on Tuesday.

It is also gathered that the Confederation of African Football, CAF has approved the replacement.

The 24-year-old Moffi, who has scored six goals in Ligue 2 this season, was a surprise omission when Nigeria named their squad last month, after he had featured in their two previous outings in November.

Boniface, 23, was ruled out on Monday with a groin injury suffered at the Nigerian training camp in Abu Dhabi.

Boniface is Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen’s top scorer, netting 10 goals in 16 league games this season.
