Injured Osimhen sidelined in Super Eagles’ World Cup qualifiers games


Victor Osimhen will miss Nigeria’s upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers due to an injury, the Nigeria Football Federation announced on Tuesday.

While the federation did not disclose specifics about the injury, it stated that the 25-year-old Napoli striker will be sidelined for four weeks.

Osimhen will be absent for the matches against South Africa in Uyo on June 7 and Benin in Ivory Coast on June 10.

His absence presents a challenge for recently appointed head coach Finidi George, who is aiming to get the Super Eagles’ qualification campaign back on track following unexpected 1-1 draws with Lesotho at home and Zimbabwe in Rwanda.
