Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen has revealed that he will be available for the upcoming AFCON to be held in Cameroon.
This was revealed in his official Twitter page as he assured Nigerians that he will be available for the tournament.
“I will be available for AFCON. Unless if i’m not among the players picked to represent NIGERIA’, he said on his Twitter account.
