Even though the 2022 FIFA World Cup is ongoing in Qatar, the Portuguese Cup is set to continue this weekend.
The Primera Liga champions FC Porto is set to be in action but they will have to make do without Nigeria’s Super Eagles defender Zaidu Sanusi.
Zaidu has been one of the amazing players for Porto this season both in the league and in the UEFA Champions League with his distinctive display.
He has been in treatment in the past weeks following an injury he sustained in the final group game of the champions league against Atletico Madrid of Spain.
The team coach Sergio Conceicao confirmed in the early hours of Tuesday that Zaidu will not be available for their cup clash against Mafra this Friday.
The Nigeria international who missed the friendly game against Portugal due to the same injury is expected to be back for Porto after the World Cup.
