Nigerians celebrate Osimhen as he successfully clears CAF’s doping tests, solidifying his reputation as a formidable striker


Nigerian supporters have showered praise on Victor Osimhen, the Super Eagles striker, commending his remarkable fitness and seemingly boundless energy.

Osimhen, along with teammates Willian Troost-Ekong and Moses Simon, passed multiple doping tests conducted by the Confederation of African Football during the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

Confident in Osimhen’s ability to pass the tests, online fans expressed relief upon the release of the results by CAF.

The Napoli striker showcased his prowess by scoring the opening goal in the 1-1 draw against Equatorial Guinea and contributing significantly to Nigeria’s victories over Ivory Coast and Cameroon.

Osimhen’s impactful performances, including setting up goals and pressuring opposition defenses, have not gone unnoticed.

Fans on social media platforms lauded his energy and skills, emphasizing Nigeria’s natural talent and dismissing the need for performance-enhancing drugs.

A sports physician, speaking anonymously, downplayed any extraordinary elements in Osimhen’s play, attributing it to dedicated training and fitness.

Fans, recalling Osimhen’s upbringing and hawking history in Lagos, linked it to his distinctive style of play.

Amid the positive sentiments, supporters expressed anticipation for Osimhen to lead the line for Nigeria in the quarter-finals against Angola, reinforcing his status as the current CAF Player of The Year.
