The in-form Nigerian striker was back at the club’s training ground on Tuesday but despite returning to training, Osimhen is still a doubt for Nigeria’s 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde.

Osimhen will be closely followed by a coach and a member of the medical staff on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to discover whether he will be ready to play against Verona on Sunday.
Should he miss the clash against Verona, he is likely to withdraw from Nigeria’s squad for the two games.
Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has already come in for criticism from some sections of the Italian media for including the 22-year-old in his squad.
