Nigeria’s star striker, Victor Osimhen, has received clearance to participate in the AFCON semi-final against South Africa tonight (February 7).
Initially facing doubts due to abdominal discomfort, Osimhen’s availability is a significant boost for the team’s aspirations.
Although his ailment initially prevented him from joining the squad in Bouake, Osimhen has since recovered and participated in training with the team on Tuesday.
His presence on the pitch is crucial for Nigeria as they aim to secure a spot in their first AFCON final since 2013.
Having played a pivotal role in Nigeria’s journey thus far, contributing to all of their goals in the tournament, Osimhen’s fitness is paramount for the Super Eagles’ success.
With his proven ability to make an impact, Nigeria will rely on him to lead the team towards their fourth AFCON title and first since 2013.
