Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has been cleared to play in Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations semi-final against South Africa following a fitness scare.
“Victor Osimhen has been declared fit and available for selection in the semi-final clash against South Africa on Wednesday. He has joined the team in Bouake and has trained with the squad today,” a team spokesperson told AFP on Tuesday, February 6.
The Napoli striker had initially appeared to be in doubt after he did not fly to Bouake from Abidjan on Monday with the rest of the squad due to abdominal discomfort.
The current African player of the year also missed training on Monday, having been substituted late in Nigeria’s quarter-final win over Angola at the weekend.
But he has now been declared fit to play in Wednesday’s semi-final against clash against South Africa.
