Osimhen Ruled Out Of Super Eagles Friendly Matches


Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, will not be available for Nigeria’s upcoming friendly games against Black Stars of Ghana and Eagles of Mali.


Osimhen was an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw against Inter Milan in Serie A on Sunday.


The 25-year-old barely trained in the days before the game.

Caretaker manager, Francesco Calzona said after the game that it was due to an inflammation of the scar from an old injury.


Osimhen has still not fully recovered from the injury as his name is not on the list of players Napoli released on international duty.

The forward now have to continue his recovery at the Castel Volturno for at least two weeks to regain his full fitness.


The Super Eagles will take on Ghana at the Grand de Stade Marrakech on Friday, March 22.


The three-time African champions will face Mali four days later at the same venue.
