Dosu worried about Osimhen’s recurring injury

by on March 10, 2017

Ex- Nigerian inter­national goalkeep­er, Dosu Joseph has a soothing word for Wolfsburg of Germany strik­er, Victor Osimhen who is re­cuperating from the surgery: “Get well soon. Do not worry about such missed chances to play in the Super Eagles. Re­main positive and believe in future opportunities.”

Osimhen has been dropped from the list of players for Nigeria’s friendly matches against Senegal and Burkina Faso in London lat­er this month due to injury.

The 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup goal king would wait for a future opportunity to fight for a shirt in the Super Eagles after Austria Vienna strik­er Olanrewaju Kayode was called up to replace him by Nigeria Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr.

Although the Atlanta ’96 Olympic gold medalist de­cried the inability of the strik­er to have claimed a perma­nent place in the national team, he however said that Osimhen has age on his side and should be calm.

“It is very unfortunate that Osimhen has been having this injury trouble. Any time he is called to the national team, one issue or the oth­er will stop him. He is a very skillful player and we saw him at the 2015 World Cup in UAE.

“He is a great player and remains the future of the Su­per Eagles. We believe he has something to offer the na­tional team that is why he is a recurring name on the list players for national assign­ment.”

Speaking on the forthcom­ing friendly matches against Burkina Faso and Senegal in London, Dosu commend­ed the Nigeria Football Fed­eration (NFF) for arranging the games, adding that the Super Eagles will need some friendlies before the World Cup qualifiers against Cam­eroon in August.

“The Game against Came­roon will be great. The Eagles need more friendly matches ahead, especially with the in­troduction of some new play­ers in the team,” he said.
