Victor Osimhen will not participate in the African Cup with Nigeria. The Naples striker is in Nigeria and has been suffering from Covid disease since yesterday, with positivity that appeared when he was about to leave by plane to Naples to visit his cheekbone that was operated on. Osimene told the Nigeria summit that he could not participate in the African Cup from January 9, a wish understood by the Nigeria Football Federation and which in fact renewed the call-ups by replacing Osimene with Onikoro, who plays in Greece at Olympiakos. Therefore, the Napoli striker remains in Nigeria, waiting to recover before leaving for Naples and resuming training.
