Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen may miss AFCON semifinal due to injury

In the absence of star striker Victor Osimhen, Nigeria faces a setback as they prepare for their Africa Cup of Nations semifinal match against South Africa. Osimhen, who has been crucial to Nigeria’s attack in the tournament, has been sidelined due to an abdominal issue. This news comes as a blow to Nigeria, as Osimhen has been involved in four of their six goals so far, including scoring the lone goal in their opening 1-1 draw against Equatorial Guinea. However, Nigeria’s coach, Jose Peseiro, has options in Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho, Trabzonspor’s Paul Onuachu, and Terem Moffi of OGC Nice. The team is hopeful that Osimhen will be cleared to join the squad before the game on Wednesday. This development adds a layer of uncertainty to Nigeria’s preparations for the crucial match and raises questions about how they will adapt without their star striker.
