I will be available for AFCON – Osimhen


Super Eagles talismanic striker Victor Osimhen said he would feature for Nigeria at next month’s Africa Cup of Nations if he is listed by the coach Augustine Eguavoen-led technical crew.

The 22-year-old Napoli striker last month suffered a left cheekbone and orbital fracture in Napoli’s Serie A clash against Inter but underwent a successful but complicated surgery afterwards.

He was expected to be out of action for 90 days but returned to light training on December 8 with words rife that his Italian club might not release him for the AFCON.

But yesterday the prolific striker said he would be available for selection for the Super Eagles.

“I will be available for AFCON unless if am not among the players picked to represent Nigeria,” Osimhen said on his verified twitter handle.
