According to Claudio Russo, Osimhen suffered a muscle strain. And he has been ruled out of Napoli’s trip to Salernitana on Sunday evening.

It’s a big blow for Napoli as the 22-year-old has been their best player this season with nine goals in eleven matches.

The extent of the injury is not yet known. But he could be out for up to two weeks. Should that be the case, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr will have to do without his top scorer in the qualifying series for the clash against the Blue Sharks and Lone Stars.
