Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that Napoli forward Victor Osimhen will miss the second leg encounter of their 2022 AFCON qualifier against Sierra Leone on Tuesday.

Rohr also stated how Leon Balogun and Samuel Chukwueze are recovering well and should make the trip to Freetown.

Osimhen suffered a dislocated shoulder at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium on Friday and was immediately replaced by Paul Onuachu while Club Brugge forward Emmanuel Dennis did not feature in the 4-4 draw because of a swollen ankle.

Balogun and Chukwueze were substituted in the game due to varying injuries, but they are working with their teammates to be in good shape.
