Victor Osimhen’s Fitness Dominates Discussions Ahead of Crucial Nigeria Football Match

In the lead-up to what is being hailed as one of the most pivotal games in Nigerian football history, all eyes have been on the fitness of Victor Osimhen over the past 12 hours.

Notably, the Napoli forward did not accompany the Super Eagles squad to their semi-final clash against South Africa, scheduled for Wednesday, February 7, 2024. Osimhen’s absence was attributed to abdominal pain, necessitating close monitoring before he could be deemed fit for play.

However, recent reports from Cote d’Ivoire indicate that Osimhen is set to join the team for training ahead of the crucial encounter against Bafana Bafana. Initially, the team’s head coach, Jose Peseiro, refrained from providing a definitive update on Osimhen’s fitness status during his pre-match press conference.

Nigeria secured their spot in the semi-final by defeating Angola, while South Africa advanced after a penalty shootout victory against Cape Verde. As anticipation builds for the upcoming match, the focus remains on Osimhen’s potential participation and its impact on the Super Eagles’ performance.
