Ndidi was injured in a Europa Conference League match against Ligue 1 side Renne shortly before the international break. Wilfred Ndidi, a Leicester City midfielder, has expressed his disappointment and shock at Nigeria's failure to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Qatar later this year.
After a goalless draw in the first leg of the World Cup qualifier in Kumasi, the Super Eagles drew 1-1 with the Black Stars in Abuja on Tuesday night, crashing out of the tournament due to the away goal rule.
In the 11th minute, Arsenal player Thomas Partey scored for Ghana, while Nigeria's William Troost Ekong equalized with a penalty 11 minutes later, as the match concluded in a tie at full time.
Ndidi, who was injured and missed the African double-header playoffs for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, took to Twitter to express his remorse and anguish over the Super Eagles' World Cup failure.
"Wow," the Leicester City midfielder wrote on Twitter, accompanied by a sobbing Emoji.
In the encounter, the defensive midfielder was a major loss, as his leadership in the middle of the pack was much missed.
