Victor Osimhen could miss Nigeria’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double header against Benin and Lesotho after picking an injury in Lille’s 3-0 home win against Girondins Bordeaux on Saturday, reports Completesports.com.
Osimhen was replaced a minute before the hour mark by Loic Remy following the setback.
“Victor Osimhen has a pain in the adductor, it can be a big problem,” Lille manager Christophe Gatlier provided update on the forward’s injury during his interaction with the media after the game.
It remains to be seen if he will be fit enough for Nigeria’s fixtures against Benin and Lesotho billed for November 14 and 19th respectively.
Osimhen has enjoyed a remarkable time to his career with Lille, netting seven times and recording two assists in 11 league outings for Les Dogues.
The 20-year-old was last week voted Ligue 1 player of the month for September. And he later received the trophy just before the kick off of Lille versus Bordeaux on Saturday.
