Super Eagles forward 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 he was substituted after sustaining a shoulder injury in the second half of the encounter at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin.
However, reports from the team’s camp have it that the Napoli forward is fine and the injury isn’t bad as first feared.
The reports also added that he won’t be out of action for too long, but it wasn’t confirmed if he will be fit on time to face Sierra Leone in Freetown.
Nigeria will take on the Sierra Leonians on Tuesday for the second leg of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
