Nigerian striker from Naples Victor Osimhen was evacuated to hospital after a shock at the very end of the match Sunday in Bergamo against Atalanta (2-4), according to several Italian media. Osimhen was very quickly evacuated on a stretcher in the 90th minute after his head hit the ground following a duel with a Bergamasque defender. Very shaken, the 22-year-old Nigerian striker would have briefly lost consciousness but he had regained his senses during the trip to the hospital where he was to pass check-ups, according to Sky Sport, broadcaster of the meeting, and the Italian agency. ANSA.
His club did not communicate, having decided not to speak to the press after a defeat that took him away from his priority objective: one of the first four places synonymous with qualification for the Champions League. Star rookie last summer from Lille, Osimhen returned to the pitch at the end of January after more than two months of absence due to a shoulder injury and the coronavirus. The Nigerian, despite a promising start to the season, has so far only scored two goals for Napoli.
