Napoli striker Victor Osimhen was conspicuously absent as Napoli suffered their second league defeat of the season at home to league leaders AC Milan at the San Paolo on Sunday night. Super Eagles of Nigeria international Osimhen was sorely missed as Napoli fell 3-1 to the Rossoneri.
Osimhen missed the game because of the shoulder injury that he sustained while on international duty with Nigeria. The young striker sustained the injury during the 2022 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers with Sierra Leone in Benin City, Nigeria. He scored one of the goals as the Super Eagles shot into a 4-0 lead in the first half. Victor Osimhen was replaced by Paul Onuachuafter he suffered the shoulder problem.
