Super Eagles Assistant Coach Salisu Yusuf has backed Henry Onyekuru to come back stronger following his injury setback.
Onyekuru was stretchered off in the 78th minute of Anderlecht’s 1-0 home win against his former club AS Eupen last Friday.
The scan later showed the forward will undergo a knee surgery and could be out for a long time.
But Yusuf is hopeful the 20-year-old will soon be back on his feet and challenging for a place in the squad ahead of the World Cup.
Onyekuru who is on loan at Anderlecht from Everton has scored nine goals in 19 league appearances for the club this season.
