The Anti-doping test administered by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Victor Osimhen, Moses Simon, and William Troost Ekong has yielded negative results. This outcome signifies the absence of any prohibited substances, thus clearing the players of any doping allegations.
The decision to conduct random drug tests on the trio follows their standout performances, particularly in Nigeria’s recent victory against Cameroon during the Round of 16 match of the AFCON 2023 tournament. Victor Osimhen, in particular, showcased exceptional skill and dedication, garnering attention from CAF officials.
As the reigning CAF Player of the Year, Osimhen’s leadership and prowess are anticipated to be pivotal as Nigeria progresses to the quarter-finals, where they are scheduled to face Angola in what promises to be an intense encounter.
