AFCON 2023: CAF picks Osimhen for random drug test

Beware Osimhen!

The Confederation of African Football has picked Nigerian international, Victor Osimhen for a random drug test after his sterling outing against Cameroon in Saturday’s Round of 16 match of the ongoing AFCON 2023.

Osimhen was the driving force in the 2-0 win for the Super Eagles with his desperation to win the ball. On one of such instances, Osimhen dispossessed a Cameroon defender of the ball and made a low pass to Lookman for the opening goal.

He chased down every ball and remained a constant threat to the Cameroon defence throughout his time on the pitch.

His tireless display has attracted the attention of CAF, leading to his being picked for a random test.

Usually, players are picked by drawing of lot for all the players in a matchday squad.

However, a player can also be picked randomly if they notice any unusual behaviour.
