BENGUELA, Angola (AFP) - Nigeria defender Yusuf Mohammed underwent surgery at a Johannesburg clinic in South Africa on Saturday, according to an official statement by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The operation on the defender's ruptured Achilles tendon took place at the Rose Bank Clinic in Johannesburg.

Nigeria team physiotherapist, Ekundayo Ogunkunle, who accompanied the player on the trip to South Africa from the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola, said the operation had been successful.

"The player is already wearing boots and they will manage him for three weeks or so before we come around to take him back to Nigeria," he added.

The Nigeria Football Federation arranged for the 26-year-old Mohammed to be flown to South Africa after he ruptured his Achilles tendon in the second half of the Africa Cup of Nations semi-final against Ghana on Thursday.
