Napoli star Victor Osimhen returned to the hotel on Friday night after he was stretched off while in action for the Super Eagles against Sierra Leone on Friday.
Osimhen scored Nigeria’s second goal before being substituted after sustaining a shoulder injury in the second half of the encounter at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin.
However, reports emanating from the Super Eagle’s camp have it that the Napoli forward is fine and the injury isn’t bad as first feared.
The reports also added that the former Lille man won’t be out of action for too long, but it wasn’t confirmed if Osimhen will be fit on time to face Sierra Leone in the return fixture in Freetown.
Nigeria travels to Sierra Leone for the second leg of the Cameroon 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.
