AFCON 2023: Osimhen Cleared To Face South Africa, Off To Bouake

Super Eagles player, Victor Osimhen has been cleared to face the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in Wednesday’s semi-final clash at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Osimhen was a major doubt for the game after failing to travel with the rest of the team to Bouake on Monday night due to abdominal discomfort.

Head coach Jose Peseiro failed to offer assurance on the Napoli forward’s availability for the game during his pre-match press conference earlier today.

“Until now, I cannot answer right because it is about health. This afternoon, I can know better if he can play or not,” Peseiro stated.

Osimhen, Completesports.com can report is on his way to Bouake to join his teammates.

The 25-year-old has scored one goal and registered one assist in five appearances for the Super Eagles at the ongoing AFCON 2023 finals.

The Super Eagles will have their final training session ahead of the game against the Bafana Bafana at the Stade Annexe, Bouake later tonight.
