Victor Osimhen To Make An Early Return From Face Injury
The Super Eagles of Nigeria seemed to have gotten good news ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations after it was revealed that 22-year old Victor Osimhen could make an early return to training after his injury.
He has suffered an injury to his left cheekbone and orbit after colliding with a player during Napoli’s Serie A clash against Inter Milan at the San Siro.
As a result of the injury, the Super Eagles player had to undergo a surgery which turned out successful though complicated. Napoli announced their star striker would be out for three months following the surgery, ruling him out of next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
However, according to La Gazzetta, as per Tutto Napoli, Osimhen could make an early return to action earlier than scheduled. According to reports, he has already had his stitches removed and will undergo another X-ray on Tuesday and if it returns positive, the Napoli striker will return to training even though with a protective face mask.
This latest development could see the Super Eagles striker turn out for the Super Eagles at AFCON, which begins on January 9 as the Super Eagles begin their own matches two days later and will be hoping to have Osimhen available for the clash against the Pharaohs of Egypt.
