Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed that striker Victor Osimhen is fit enough to face Sierra Leone on Friday.
Osimhen was the last to join the squad in training camp ahead of the Friday’s Nations cup qualifiers against Sierra Leone.
The 21 year-old also trained with the rest of his teammates on Wednesday evening and has now been declared ready for the match.
Rohr explained that players had difficulties getting flight down to Nigeria from their respective bases due to the travel restrictions around the world.
“Most of the players have difficulties in getting flights down here because of the travel restrictions . Some of them travelled via Addis Ababa in Ethiopia which was difficult,” He said.
Osimhen missed Nigeria’s friendlies in October against Algeria and Tunisia, but is expected to lead the attack against the Leone Stars.
