AFCON: Osimhen cleared by doctors, to join teammates in showdown against South Africa


Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has been reportedly cleared by the team’s medical doctor for the clash against South Africa.

Recall Osimhen missed the Super Eagles’ travel to Bouake, where they would face South Africa in the semi-finals, due to gastrointestinal problems.

The Napoli striker is expected to be inspected on Tuesday morning and, if cleared, will join the rest of the squad that has arrived safely in Bouake.

According to sources in Abidjan, Osimhen is on his way to Bouake after being declared fit by the medical team.

Osimhen has started in all of Super Eagles’ five matches in Cote d’Ivoire, scoring one goal and chalking up one assist.
