Super Eagles attacker, Samuel Kalu, is reportedly in stable condition and back in the team hotel after being taken to hospital following a collapse in Training.

The young forward had reportedly slumped yesterday while trying to take a corner-kick in training and was immediately stabilized by team medical staff before he was taken to hospital for tests.

Local reports claimed the player suffered a heart attack but doctors and team media officials confirm it’s dehydration as temperatures have gone up to about 40 degrees in Egypt.

A final decision will be made on the player's involvement in the tournament today with the player likely to be dropped If it is true that the incident was heart-related.

According to the rules, an injured player can be replaced if it happens 24hrs before his team’s first game, which could give Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho a way back into the team.
