Victor Osimhen has handed the Super Eagles a massive boost after revealing he is fully fit to feature in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
Last month reports emerged that Osimhen will miss the upcoming AFCON after suffering a facial injury during Napoli’s Serie A match against Inter Milan. After undergoing surgery, the Nigerian was expected to be on the sidelines for at least three months.
However, Osimhen has now revealed he is ready for the AFCON tournament set to kick off in January if he is picked by the head coach.
The Napoli forward is reported to have resumed training after recovering from the horrific facial injury in November.
“I am 100% ready to represent Nigeria at the 2021 AFCON if I am picked by the coaches,” Osimhen had posted on Twitter.
The 22-year-old has netted ten goals for Napoli so far this season, with the club establishing itself as a genuine title contender.
