Two weeks ahead of AFCON, and about a month after the incident, Osimhen shared his picture while training and announced that he is fully fit to take part in the AFCON.

The Napoli forward is a crucial player for Nigeria, after meeting the back of the net 10 times and providing six assists in 19 caps. The 22-year-old met the target in three of his six World Cup qualifiers group stage matches and five in six qualifiers for AFCON.

The Group D sides included the Green Eagles alongside Sudan, Guinea-Bissau, and Egypt. They will start their battle against Egypt on January 11.
