BREAKING: Osimhen Tests Positive For COVID-19 10 Days To AFCON


Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has tested positive for COVID-19, just 10 days to the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.


Napoli made the disclosure on its official website.


23-year-old Osimhen who is in Nigeria’s squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations is expected to return to Naples to assess his cheekbone injury on Friday.

He had been ruled out for three months following the injury, but later received green light from doctors to resume training.


However, the swab test he underwent in Nigeria before boarding on Thursday (today) came back positive, so the forward didn’t leave his native country.


“SSC Napoli announces that the player Victor James Osimhen tested positive, asymptomatic, at Covid-19 during the execution of the swab before the trip to Italy, where a check-up by Prof. Tartaro was scheduled for tomorrow,” reads a statement on the club’s website.
