Victor Osimhen of the Super Eagles is anticipated to play for Napoli soon after the international break, according to Soccernet.ng.

In preparation for the international friendlies against Ghana and Mali, Osimhen was called up to the Nigerian team. But he was forced to withdraw from the matches following an injury he suffered during the Partenopeans’ UEFA Champions League match versus Barcelona.

He was forced to withdraw from the matches against Mali and Ghana as well as miss Napoli’s match against Inter Milan due to injury.

In Nigeria’s opening match against Ghana, Ademola Lookman and Cyriel Dessers did the heavy lifting to give the Super a 2-1 victory; therefore, Osimhen’s absence was not much felt. Additionally, Sadiq Umar is executed to head the line in the second game.

The 25-year-old striker is reportedly getting close to getting back to full fitness, which gives Napoli and Nigerian supporters reason to celebrate. It’s encouraging that Osimhen has already begun receiving individualised training on the pitch.

The Super Eagles star should be ready for Napoli’s Serie A match against Atalanta at Stadio Diego Maradona on March 30.

Given that both teams are vying for a position in the UEFA Champions League, the matchup promises to be intense. Osimhen could greatly assist Napoli if he were to return.
