International Friendly: Osimhen Doubtful For Mozambique Clash


Following the injury he sustained in the game against Saudi Arabia, Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen remains a big doubt for the second friendly against Mozambique.

The Napoli striker was subbed off early in the second half of the game against the Green Falcons due to an injury he sustained in the course of the game.

The coach of the Super Eagles Jose Peseiro has said Osimhen will undergo an MRI Scan to ascertain the level of the injury.

“At this moment, it is my opinion, will I go and put in a player with an injury?

A month’s injury, or even two? It is better to put it in his mind now.

“He is going to do the test, check, and if it doesn’t improve, you must expect the club to make the final decisions, the club pays the salary for him.

“Not only for Osimhen but for our players”, he said after the game.
