Nigeria and Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has described the lockdown orchestrated by the COVID-19 pandemic as difficult yet necessary. Ndidi, whose career has blossomed since moving to England in 2017 with World Cup and Africa Nations Cup appearances for Nigeria, has joined thousands of professional players in the lockdown since March 23, when U.K mandated the forced shutdown and stay at home order.
In a recent interview after 35 days on lockdown, Ndidi said he has been doing a lot of movie watching and FIFA 20 video games. He actually joined a challenge put together by the Premier League to promote competiveness among players and teams through FIFA 20 online game.
