Victor Osimhen Set to Undergo Surgery after Inter Milan Game
Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has suffered an injury in his cheekbone while playing against Inter Milan in Serie A.
The forward man started the game in the 3-2 defeat at the San Siro but was substituted on the 52nd minute following a clash of the head with Milan's player, Skriniar, which left the Nigerian with a black eye.
Napoli confirmed that the 22-year-old will undergo surgery following the damage to his left eye. He was immediately taken to the San Raffaele Hospital for tests, which found multiple breaks on his cheek and a fractured eye socket.
The player and Nigerians will hope the striker is fit for the African Cup of Nations, which will be hosted in Cameroon in January 2022.
