Victor Osimhen will miss Nigeria’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matchday four encounter against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in Freetown.
The encounter will take place next week Tuesday at the Siaka Stevens Stadium, Freetown.
Osimhen dislocated his shoulder in Nigeria’s 4-4 home draw against same opponent on Friday.
The Napoli of Italy striker was stretchered off 15 minutes from time and replaced by Paul Onuachu.
Newsmen learnt that Osimhen will spend few weeks on the sidelines and won’t be available to the trip to Freetwon.
He will likely return to Italy to have further treatment on the injury at his club Napoli.
Leicester City star Kelechi Iheanacho is expected to take his in the starting line-up.
