Super Eagles strike, Victor Osimhen has again tested positive for Covid-19 10 days to the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
With this development, Osimhen, who is also Napoli’s striker could be ruled out from Nigeria’s opening Group D match against Egypt on January 11 and Sudan on January 15 at the Roumde Adjia Stadium in Garoua.
If completely ruled out of the competition, it will deal a big blow to the attacking formation of Augustine Eguavoen’s 28-man squad.
Napoli in a statement on Thursday said, “Napoli has announced that Victor Osimhen has tested positive for Covid-19 but is asymptomatic. Dr. Tartaro was due to perform a check-up on the player tomorrow.
“Consequently, the local authorities have ordered that Osimhen self-isolate and the check-up will be rescheduled after he has tested negative and his period of isolation ends.”
