Multiple Super Eagles sources claim that Super Eagles bomber Victor Osimhen is now expected in Bouake after being cleared for an abdominal discomfort problem by the Nigeria medical team.


The Super Eagle’s medical team has reportedly cleared the Nigeria striker for the clash against Bafana Bafana of South Africa on Wednesday in Bouake, Cote d’Ivoire.


Following a reported abdominal discomfort,  Osimhen was not in the Nigerian entourage to Bouake, the venue of the semifinal clash with South Africa on Monday.


Following his most recent illness, he was immediately declared doubtful for the epic AFCON 2023 semifinal clash with South Africa’s national football side.


It was reported that the Partenopei striker would be reassessed on Tuesday morning and, if deemed fit to play, would be allowed to join other Nigerian squad members who arrived safely in Bouake on Monday.


Osimhen started all of the Super Eagles’ games in Cote d’Ivoire, scoring just a goal and notching an assist to his credit.
