Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and Taiwo Awoniyi of Nottingham Forest were among the players ruled out of Nigeria’s friendly games against Ghana and Mali.

The Super Eagles camp for the game opened on Tuesday. But Osimhen, Africa’s Player of the Year, would miss the matches, according to an update on the team’s social media page.

Osimhen, 25, has struggled with fitness in the past weeks and will not make the 22nd and 26 March friendly matches.

He is not the only one out of the games due to injury. Awoniyi who just recovered from a long lay-off has also been sidelined.
