Victor Osimhen's Absence Raises Concerns Ahead of Super Eagles' AFCON Semi-final

Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, was unable to join the team on their journey to Bouake on Monday due to abdominal discomfort.

The Nigerian national team is set to face South Africa in the Semi-final of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cote d’Ivoire on Wednesday.

Osimhen was left behind in Abidjan, where medical professionals are working to ensure his fitness for the upcoming match.

While the rest of the team arrived in Bouake around 10pm via Air Cote d’Ivoire, Osimhen’s absence is a cause for concern.

The Super Eagles confirmed on Twitter that the player is under close observation by the team’s medical staff, with one member remaining with him in Abidjan.

If he is cleared by tomorrow morning, he will rejoin the squad before 5pm.

Despite only scoring one goal in the tournament so far, Osimhen has been a formidable presence for the opposition.

His absence from the team raises questions about the Super Eagles’ attacking options for the crucial match against South Africa.

The team will be hoping for a speedy recovery for Osimhen, as they aim to secure a place in the AFCON final.

As fans eagerly await updates on Osimhen’s condition, the focus shifts to the rest of the Super Eagles squad and their preparations for the upcoming match.

The team will need to regroup and adapt their tactics to compensate for the absence of their key striker.

With the stakes high, the Super Eagles will be looking to overcome this setback and continue their quest for AFCON glory.
