Super Eagles’ first assistant coach Finidi George is hopeful that Victor Osimhen can feature for Nigeria when they trade tackles with Algeria in this month’s international friendly.

The two former African champions will lock horns at the Stade Olympique d’Oran in Bir El Djir on September 27.

Head coach Jose Peseiro will target bringing in the best Nigerian legs available to shoot down the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations winner.

Already, the Portuguese manager will be without the injured Super Eagles stars Jamilu Collins, Umar Sadiq, Akinkumi Amoo, and Semi Ajayi. The quartet faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering various serious injuries.

Nigeria’s most valuable player Victor Osimhen could also miss the international friendly after sustaining a knock last week.
