Victor Osimhen has been ruled out of Napoli’s league meeting with AC Milan due to shoulder injury he sustained while with national team.

A test carried out in Rome on Wednesday confirmed Osimhen’s shoulder dislocation, and he’s expected to be out for some weeks.

However Football Italia, reported that the 21 year-old did not require surgery on the injured shoulder after leaving Rome’s Villa Stuart, where he underwent tests.


It will be recalled that the Napoli striker injured his shoulder in Friday’s African Cup of Nations qualifying game between Nigeria and Sierra Leone at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin-City.

The injury occurred in the second half of the encounter and he was replaced by Paul Onuachu.

Osimhen scored in the game, but the injury kept him out of the return leg in Freetown on Tuesday.
