Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen returned to the pitch for Napoli on Sunday after spending over two months on the sideline.

Osimhen has been sidelined with a shoulder injury since November 2020, before testing positive to dreaded corona virus.

After spending weeks in isolation, the Forward  was later declared fit to return to action on Saturday.

Osimhen came on as a second-half substitute in Napoli’s 3-1 defeat against Hellas Verona on Sunday for his first appearance in 2021.

The Nigeria International took the place of Andrea Petagna in the 65th, but his introduction counted for nothing as Gennaro Gattuso’s side fell to a shocking defeat.

Mexican forward Irving Lozano gave Napoli early lead but goals from Federico Dimarco,Antonio Barak and Mattia Zaccagni condemned them to another defeat.
