Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has allayed fears about him facing a challange to be fit for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen who has bagged 16 goals and four assists so far this term for Sporting Charleroi missed training at Marcinelle on Tuesday morning which has given the Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr a bit of concern.

“Yes I missed training because I needed to rest well and take precautions, but I am fine now,” Osimhen told Completesports.com.

“We remain focused on winning our next game and seal qualification for the Europa League for next season.
