AFCON Qualifiers: Injury Blow For Osimhen


Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen found himself stretched out in Friday’s African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Sierra Leone’s Leone Stars after sustaining a playful injury.

Osimhen, who scored Nigeria’s second goal after Alex Iwobi’s opener in the fourth minute, appears to have suffered a wrist injury.

The Napoli forward was initially treated by doctors at the Sam Ogbemudia Stadium before finally being replaced by Paul Onuachu.

While it seems almost certain that Osimhen will be out of Tuesday’s second leg in Freetown, it is not yet clear whether he will spend long periods on the sidelines.
