Ex-Super Eagles Star In Critical Condition


Ex-Super Eagles player defender Yisa Sofoluwe is on life support at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

According to PUNCH, Sofoluwe has “been diagnosed for mild cerebral atrophy at the Prince and Life Medical Hospital, Ikorodu, Lagos.” He was moved to LUTH on Friday after his medical condition became worse.

The former Nigerian international is currently on oxygen and is struggling to survive.

According to another ex-international Waidi Akanni, “He’s on oxygen as we speak and that’s between life and death. He has been transferred to LUTH for intensive care.”

“He needs adequate treatment to recover well. I’m calling on Nigerians to come to his aid” he further told Punch.

Sofoluwe had 40 caps for Nigeria and was part of the 1984 and 1988 AFCON Super Eagles squads.
