 Napoli Striker Osimhen Regains Consciousness After Collapsing On The Pitch In Serie A Match
Napoli striker Victor Osimhen could not complete his team's 4-2 loss to Atalanta on Sunday evening after losing consciousness in the closing minutes of the game.
 
The Nigeria international collapsed on the pitch and was stretchered off after hitting his head on the turf following a challenge by Cristian Romero.

Italian sports daily Corriere dello Sport has reported that Osimhen was attended to by Professor Canonico and regained consciousness in the ambulance that transported him to the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital.

The newspaper added that the number 9 underwent tests and it was discovered that he has suffered a head injury.

Osimhen has struggled to make an impact since recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered while on international duty and coronavirus, failing to score in eight consecutive matches since his comeback.

The 22-year-old had a promising start to his career at Napoli, directly participating in three goals in his first six appearances in the Serie A.

Following their eighth loss of the season, Napoli are seventh in the table with 40 points, three off the Champions League places.
