CAF Picks Osimhen for Drug Test Following Performance at AFCON’s Round of 16

AFCON 2023 CAF picks Super Eagles striker Osimhen for drug test 1

According to some outlet Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, has been selected by the Confederation of African Football, CAF, for random drug tests at the tournament.

A source told DAILY POST that Osimhen was tested against hosts, Cote d’Ivoire and Cameroon.

“(He was) tested against Cote dIvoire and Cameroon. That is twice in four games,” the source said.

The Napoli striker was fouled for the penalty that gave Nigeria a 1-0 win over the Ivorians.

Osimhen then put in a ‘battering ram’ performance against the Indomitable Lions as they won 2-0 in a last-16 clash on Sunday.

He set up the first goal for Ademola Lookman and was a constant menace for the Cameroonians, before he was replaced by Paul Onuachu late in the game.

Osimhen’s only goal came in the 1-1 draw against Equatorial Guinea in their first fixtures.
