Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi will miss November’s 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier with South Africa after picking a second booking.
Ndidi got a second yellow in the qualification game with Libya on Tuesday, making him unfit for the battle with the Bafana Bafana.
Nigeria won the first leg of the back-to-back qualifier with the North Africans 4-0 on Saturday before grabbing a 2-3 in the reverse game on Tuesday.
With the win, Gernot Rohr’s team are now top of the Group E standings with nine points after four games.
South Africa are second with eight points after drawing blank with minnows Seychelles on Tuesday.
