Osimhen to battle Chukwueze in friendly match


They may not have qualified with the Super Eagles for the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar but Nigerian player Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze will have plenty to do on the field when they battle in a friendly match involving their clubs Napoli and Villarreal at the Diego Maradona Stadium on December 17.

Osimhen and Chukwueze have been close pals since their days in the Golden Eaglets set of 2015.

Osimhen, for one, has returned to full training with Napoli after being sidelined by a back injury for 14 day.



Osimhen and his table-topping Napoli side will however before their contest with Villarreal participate in a series of friendlies in Turkey.

On Wednesday, December 7, Napoli confront hosts Antalyaspor, before taking on Premier League team Crystal Palace four days after.
