Victor Osimhen to Miss Key World Cup Qualifiers Due to Injury

Posted : 29 May 2024

Victor Osimhen to Miss Key World Cup Qualifiers Due to InjuryVictor Osimhen will be sidelined for Nigeria's upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers due to an injury, as announced by the Nigeria Football Federation on Tuesday. The federation did not provide specifics about the injury but stated that the 25-year-old Napoli striker is expected to be out for four weeks.


Osimhen's absence means he will miss the crucial matches against South Africa in Uyo on June 7 and Benin in Ivory Coast on June 10. This injury presents a significant challenge for the newly appointed head coach, Finidi George, as he aims to steer the Super Eagles' qualification campaign back on course after unexpected 1-1 draws against Lesotho at home and Zimbabwe in Rwanda.


The loss of Osimhen, a key player for Nigeria, complicates George's task of revitalizing the team's performance. His strategic adjustments will be crucial as the Super Eagles strive to secure essential points in these upcoming qualifiers.
