 VfL Wolfsburg forward Victor Osimhen is out of Nigeria’s international friendlies against Senegal and Burkina Faso later this month in London.

The 18-year-old was listed among the 25-man squad released by the Nigeria Football Federation last week but it is looking likely he would not be available for the games because of the injury.

Osimhen underwent an operation on his knee about 10 days ago after suffering a relapse from a previous operation and is expected to be back after 12 weeks.

The talented teenager, who shone like a million stars at the 2015 FIFA Under-17 World Cup, is yet to make his official debut for the Bundesliga side since his move there.

He is effectively out for the rest of the season but might be back for Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations and FIFA World Cup qualifiers later in the year.

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, who is aware of the injury to the former Golden Eaglets star, is yet to name a replacement for Osimhen for the upcoming international friendlies.
