The player narrowly escaped a serious injury at a friendly match between his Belgian Jupiler side, Gent and German second-tier club Nurnberg on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old crashed to the ground after 24 minutes in the encounter eventually won 1-0 by Gent.

There were fears that he had broken his leg.

The former Ajax player was rushed to hospital for urgent attention.

However, it was good news for Nigeria as Brussels-based newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws reported late on Tuesday that Simon only suffered a serious leg wound.

“Good news about the situation of Moses Simon, who was injured during the practice match against Nuremberg. Photos showed a severe bruise, but no break,” the newspaper wrote.
