Former Nigeria captain, Joseph Yobo, has expressed his sadness over the loss of Victor Osimhen to injury.

Osimhen has been ruled out of next year’s Africa Cup of Nations with a facial injury.

The 22-year-old was forced off as Napoli lost 3-2 to Inter Milan on Sunday, following a clash of heads with Milan Skriniar.

A statement from his Serie A club confirmed Osimhen would undergo surgery and be out of action for at least three months.

“It is shocking to hear that such an integral part of the national team is going to be missing the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

“He is a big player, but his health is more important. It is a blow for the national team.

“Osimhen is a young lad who has a lot of potential and is still developing. I had a chat with him recently and I reminded him of how great he could be. I wish him a speedy recovery.

“His talent is unmeasurable, his presence, his energy and what he brings to the team as a no. 9 is frightening,” Yobo told Goal.
