Osimhen misses Super Eagles’ travel to South Africa

Nigerian star striker Victor Osimhen’s participation in the AFCON semi-final against South Africa hangs in the balance after he missed the team’s flight to Bouaké due to abdominal discomfort.

Team officials confirmed on Monday night that Osimhen is under close medical observation in Abidjan and will not travel with the squad initially.

However, there’s a glimmer of hope: if he receives medical clearance by tomorrow morning, he could still join his teammates before the crucial match at 5 pm.

This news comes as a blow to Nigeria’s Super Eagles, who rely heavily on Osimhen’s scoring prowess.

His absence would be a major setback in their quest for AFCON glory. The team is anxiously awaiting an update on his condition and hoping for his swift recovery.
