Victor Osimhen’s fitness has been the main focus of the last twelve hours leading up to what may be considered the most significant game in Nigerian football history.

Remember that the forward for Napoli did not travel to the Super Eagles’ semi-final match against South Africa on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, along with the rest of the team. Osimhen had an abdominal ache that required monitoring before he could be cleared to play in the match, so it was decided that he was not well enough to travel.

But according to reports from Cote d’Ivoire, Osimhen will practice with the team in order to get ready for the Bafana Bafana match. In his pregame press conference, the team’s head coach, José Peseiro, had first stated that he was unable to provide an answer about the forward player’s fitness.

While South Africa defeated Cape Verde on penalties to secure a date with the Eagles, Nigeria defeated Angola in the quarterfinals to advance to the semi-finals.
