Napoli to carry out further test on Victor Osimhen

Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) President Amaju Pinnick is optimistic Super Eagles pairing Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze has the potential to become Africa's best in the coming years

Napoli’s Victor Osimhen will not be part of the Super Eagles squad for the second leg of the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone.

The forward suffered a shoulder injury after scoring in a 4 – 4 draw on Friday at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin.

The forward was examined on Saturday and the results confirmed that his right shoulder has a problem, which ruled him out of the game.

He will return to Naples in the next few hours where the medical staff will do other tests to see if he recovers quickly for the match against Milan next weekend.
