Victor James Osimhen MON MFR is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Serie A club Napoli and the Nigerian national team. Regarded as one of the best players in the world, he is known for his elite finishing, pace, strength and athleticism. Serie A champions Napoli have confirmed Victor Osimhen will not feature in Super Eagles’ friendly against Ghana and Mali due to injury.

Victor Osimhen was named among the substitutes in Napoli’s 1-1 draw with Inter Milan at the San Siro on Sunday but didn’t feature in the game. Caretaker manager Francesco Calzona said after the game that it was due to an inflammation of the scar from an old injury. The 25-year-old has still not fully recovered from the injury as his name was not on the list of players Napoli released from international duty.

Tyrone Ebuehi and Gabriel Osho have already been ruled out of the friendlies with injuries. Nottingham Forest forward Taiwo Awoniyi is also doubtful for a clash with the Black Stars and Eagles due to fitness concerns. 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. Despite injury worries, Nigeria’s camp in Marrakech, Morocco is already brimming with 16 players who observed their first training session on Tuesday. Most of those already around were part of the team featured at the AFCON.

Cyril Dessers, Nathan Tella, Simon Moses, Stanley Nwabali, Fisayo Bashiru, Calvin Bassey, Iwobi Alex, Semi Ajayi, Jamiliu Collins, Bruno Onyemaechi, and Sadiq Umar are now in Camp. Others include Raphael Onyedika, Ademola Lookman, Ojo Olorunleke, Benjamin Tanimu and Alhassan Yusuf. While Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Francis Uzoho, Chidozie Awaziem Frank Onyeka and Bright Osayi-Samuel are expected to hit the camp today.
