Victor Osimhen has said his injury is not as serious as feared and expected not to be on the sidelines for long.

Osimhen was stretchered off the Nigeria vs Sierra Leone Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Friday evening after sustaining a shoulder injury.

He has also informed his club Napoli about his injury.

However, it is still not clear if he will remain in Nigeria or travel back to Italy for further treatment.

The 22-year-old scored the second goal for Nigeria, taking his tally to four goals and one assist in three appearances for the AFCON qualifiers.
