Shittu & bust - Danny out for 8 weeks

Danny Shittu - Watford`s man mountain centre back - has withdrawn from the Nigerian squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers and could be out for up to 8 weeks, according to reports on EuroSport and MTN Africa this morning

The Super Eagles defensive rock missed last nights 1-1 stalemate friendly with EURO2008 hosts Austria in Graz with a suspected knee injury and medical staff have advised of a lengthy lay-off for the 27 year old.

Nigerian officials have confirmed that Shittu - who was named in the Team of the Tournament for the 2008 African Nations Cup - will not play any part in World Cup Group 4 qualifiers against Equatorial Guinea, Sierra Leone and the crunch clash against South Africa later this month.

Big man, big money signing and now biggin` it up in the treatment room it seems.

Always had knee troubles ever since he did his ligaments down at Bournemouth.... AND PLAYED ON. Good old Prav Mathema the physio.

Maybe blessing in disguise for the club as a whole. (1881 'till I die)
