AFCON: Osimhen Doubtful for South Africa Clash

by Silverbird News24

There are concerns about the availability of striker, Victor Osimhen for the Super Eagles’ Africa Cup of Nations semi-final clash against South Africa.

According to a statement by the team on Monday, the Napoli striker is suffering from abdominal discomfort and has not traveled with the team to Bouaké, the city of Wednesday’s clash.

The 25-year-old can however join the rest of the squad on Tuesday if he is cleared by the team’s medics.

Despite scoring only one goal in the tournament so far, Osimhen has been one of the strong performers for the Eagles.

His partnership upfront with Ademola Lookman and Moses Simon has been one of the reasons the team has qualified for their 16th AFCON semi-final.

Nigeria will face South Africa at the Stade De La Paix, Bouake at 6 pm.
