Napoli confirms Osimhen unavailable for Nigeria duty

Posted : 19 March 2024

Napoli announced that Victor Osimhen will miss international duty with Nigeria due to injury. The striker, who was only a substitute in Sunday's 1-1 draw against Inter at San Siro, had limited training leading up to the match. Coach Francesco Calzona revealed that Osimhen is dealing with inflammation from a previous injury, indicating that he has yet to fully recover.

As a result of his condition, Osimhen's name was omitted from Napoli's list of players selected for international duty. He joins Hamed Junior Traore, who will not join the Ivory Coast squad, and Jesper Lindstrom, who won't be part of the Denmark team.


Meanwhile, several Napoli players have been called up by their respective national teams. Among them are Alex Meret, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, and Giacomo Raspadori for Italy; Jens Cajuste for Sweden; Kvicha Kvaratskhelia for Georgia; Stanislav Lobotka for Slovakia; Leo Ostigard for Norway; Mathias Olivera for Uruguay; Amir Rrahmani for Kosovo; and Piotr Zielinski for Poland.

Despite Osimhen's absence, Napoli remains well represented on the international stage, with several players set to compete for their countries. The club will be closely monitoring Osimhen's recovery to ensure his swift return to action.
