Super Eagles’ midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi has given Coach Gernot Rohr a potential World Cup dilemma after the combative midfielder limped off before the hour mark in his side’s 5-0 thumping by Crystal Palace, AOIFootball.com reports.

The 21-year-old, who has featured in all but three of his side’s EPL fixture this term, went to the ground four minutes into the second half and was replaced by Dragovic as he failed to recover from the knock.

Meanwhile Leicester Coach, Claude Puel has revealed that Wilfred Ndidi suffered a hamstring injury in the defeat at Crystal Palace which could put the midfielder’s World Cup in jeopardy.

The Leicester City midfielder limped off early in the second half in the 5-0 drubbing at Selhurst Park and had to be helped along the touchline and down the tunnel by one of City’s physio team.

That sight will come as a concern for both Puel, whose midfield options are becoming increasingly limited, and Ndidi, who is just weeks away from the World Cup.

Puel said that the 21-year-old’s injury would need to be assessed but hopes it will not harm his chances of impressing in Russia this summer.

Ndidi’s absence was massively felt as further goals from Loftus-Cheek (81), Van Aanholt (84) and Benteke (90 penalty) ensured 10-man Leicester remained without a win after three consecutive games.

Though the extent of Ndidi’s injury is not yet determined, the midfielder could now miss the remainder of the season as he bids to recover in time for the World Cup.
