Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen expects to be back on the pitch in no time after he was substituted by coach Luciano Spalleti at half-time in the game against Liverpool.

The forward was fouled by Dutchman Vigil van Dijk in the box, however, his spot kick was beaten away by Alisson.

Napoli defeated Liverpool by 4-1 after an impressive first half.

Reacting to the news of his injury, Osimhen said: "It's football, and it's very normal. I have been receiving a lot of messages and thanks to those that actually care and reached out to me immediately."

"And for all that believe in me, I will make sure I work so hard to come back and continue to give my best and my all for the team."
