Nigerian international Victor Osimhen has been selected for doping tests, raising eyebrows after his electrifying performance against Cameroon in the AFCON 2023 Round of 16. CAF, the Confederation of African Football, decided to test Osimhen following his dominant display, where he covered vast stretches of the pitch while showcasing impressive defensive prowess.
These tests will be conducted before the Super Eagles’ clash with Angola in the quarter-finals on Friday. Notably, Osimhen isn’t the only player under the microscope. Fellow Nigerian stars William Troost-Ekong and Simon Moses, along with two Cameroonian players, are also subject to the same process.
CAF takes performance-enhancing drug use very seriously and upholds a strict anti-doping policy. If Osimhen tests positive, he could face severe consequences, including a lengthy suspension from football.
Nigerian fans are anxiously awaiting the results of these tests, hoping for a clean slate for Osimhen. He’s a crucial cog in the Super Eagles’ machine, and their AFCON title aspirations significantly depend on his talent and dedication.
