Super Eagle’s and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has disclosed that he will be available and fit for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament next year.
Osimhen’s participation was in doubt, after he suffered a facial injury in their Serie A clash against Inter Milan last November.
However, Osimhen has made a quick return ahead of schedule, resuming individual training just two weeks after his surgery.
He has now alerted the coaching crew of the Super Eagles that he will be fit and ready.
“I will be available for AFCON unless if am not among the players picked to represent NIGERIA,” Osimhen tweeted on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old fractured his left cheekbone and orbit after clashing with Milan Skriniar. He then underwent a complicated but successful injury.
Following the surgery, Napoli announced that Osimhen would be out for three months, which effectively ruled him out of AFCON.
