Ogenyi Onazi could be back to full fitness in six weeks, according to reports in the Italian Press this afternoon.
The Nigeria midfielder was stretchered off in the Super Eagles 2-0 loss to France on Monday, thanks to a challenge from Blaise Matuidi.
Initial report in Africa had claimed that the Lazio man fractured his tibia and fibula, but Corriere dello Sport believe otherwise.
The paper insists that: “the Lazio medical staff have looked at the tests, and believe it will take around a month and a half to completely recover.”
