AFCON 2021- Nigeria: Four withdrawals including Osimhen and Dennis

A new twist in the Victor Osimhen story. The Napoli striker has announced his desire to play in the 2021 African Cup of Nations and was included in Nigeria's initial list. Positive for Covid-19 and placed in solitary confinement, the Super Eagle is absent from the final selection for the competition. This is a major blow for Nigeria, who will also have to cope without Emmanuel Dennis. The Watford striker, who has been in the limelight since the start of the season, has declined the call-up due to "complications" with his club. Defenders Leon Balogun and Abdullahi Shehu are injured. To deal with these absences, interim coach Augustine Eguavoen has called up Semi Ajayi (West Bromwich Albion), Tyrone Ebuehi (Venice), Peter Olayinka and Henry Onyekuru (Olympiakos).
