Osimhen was initially named in the 23-man squad for the prestige friendly but was replaced with Cremonese forward, Cyriel Dessers due to injury.

Concerns were raised over his decision to pull out of the game as he featured for 90 minutes in Napoli’s 3-2 victory against Udinese last weekend.

Peseiro however stated that the forward is truly injured and not fit to face his native country.

“They sent in a report to our doctor and they said he will need between 10-15 days to fully recover.

“Of course, I will like to play him but there is nothing I can do, I always like to play the best.”
