AFCON 2023: CAF picks Super Eagle striker Osimhen for drug test

Victor James Osimhen MFR, a renowned Nigerian professional footballer, serves as a striker for Serie A’s Napoli and the Nigerian national team. Recognized globally as one of the premier strikers, Osimhen is celebrated for his exceptional finishing skills, speed, strength, and athleticism. The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has chosen Osimhen for random drug tests during the tournament, conducting the tests against hosts Cote d’Ivoire and Cameroon, twice within four games, according to a source from the DAILY POST.

Manchester United has responded to Osimhen’s outstanding performance in Nigeria’s 2-0 victory over Cameroon during the Africa Cup of Nations round of sixteen. The Red Devils seemingly closely followed the clash of the African giants on Saturday. Ademola Lookman secured Nigeria’s lead in the first half, doubling it in the second half for a well-deserved 2-0 triumph.

Osimhen played a crucial role, drawing a foul that led to the penalty securing Nigeria’s 1-0 win over the Ivorians. His powerful performance, often described as a ‘battering ram,’ contributed significantly to the 2-0 victory against the Indomitable Lions in the last-16 clash on Sunday. Osimhen not only set up the opening goal for Ademola Lookman but also posed a constant threat to the Cameroonians before being substituted late in the game. His sole goal in the tournament came during the 1-1 draw against Equatorial Guinea in the initial fixtures. As the current CAF Player of the Year, Osimhen is anticipated to lead Nigeria’s frontline in the quarter-finals against Angola this week.
