Simon was swiftly rushed to the hospital after a collision with an opponent in the 24th minute of the game, raising initial fears of a serious injury that could potentially sideline him.
However, recent reports from the reputable Belgian online outlet m.hnl.be have alleviated concerns.

As the talented winger remains under observation, Gent’s management is optimistic about his swift return to the pitch. The outcome of his recovery will undoubtedly influence his potential inclusion in Nigeria’s squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Despite the initial scare, Moses Simon’s resilience and the promising medical update provide a sigh of relief for both Gent and Nigeria’s football enthusiasts. The football community awaits further updates on Simon’s progress and his potential participation in upcoming fixtures.
