The Nigeria striker’s Napoli teammate has told GOAL that he would have loved a Nations Cup showdown against his clubmate

Victor Osimhen’s reasons for not being at the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria, despite recovering from Covid-19, aren’t clear to his Napoli teammate Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.

Speaking after Cameroon’s opening Afcon victory over Burkina Faso, the on-loan Fulham midfielder acknowledged that he was in the dark as to why Osimhen hadn’t been able to join up with the Super Eagles despite recovering from coronavirus.

“I know he wanted to play at the Africa Cup of Nations and it’s a shame he’s not here,” Zambo Anguissa told GOAL. “I don’t know exactly why, I didn’t speak to him about this, but I can tell you that he’s a top player.
