Victor Osimhen has recovered much faster than expected. The Napoli striker suffered multiple fractures to his face and underwent surgery on 23 November. He returned to training on 10 December. A return to action sooner than expected, which has led to the possibility of participation in the 2021 African Cup of Nations with the Super Eagles. A scenario confirmed by the interested party himself, who announced that he was available to play the competition in Cameroon. "I will be available for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, unless I am not among the players selected to represent Nigeria," he said in a post on his social networks.
This will put a smile on the faces of Nigerian fans, even if Osimhen will have to play with a protective mask for the occasion. The media outburst comes 48 hours after his Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti described the Nigerian striker as an "invisible monster".
