African player of The Year, Victor Osimhen and other two Super Eagles players, Moses Simon and William Troost-Ekong passed the Confederation of African Football (CAF) random anti-doping tests and are free to take part in their quarter-final clash with Angola on Friday.

CAF picked Nigeria international striker Victor Osimhen, Super Eagles winger and defender, Moses Simon and William Troost-Ekong for random drug tests after their last group match and 2-0 Round of 16 victory over Cameroon.

Victor Osimhen played a significant role for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations group stage and the Round of 16 clash against Cameroon.

Reports indicated that the Nigerian international underwent the test following the match against Guinea-Bissau.

Similarly, FC Nantes forward Simon Moses and William Troost-Ekong, have also been subjected to dope tests.

The random tests are standard procedures, typically conducted on players whose enhanced energy levels may raise suspicions of substance use.

Additionally, sources revealed that two Cameroonian players also underwent similar tests, noting that Osimhen is not the sole player involved in the tournament.

Meanwhile, Coach Peseiro’s side will face Angola in the quarterfinals of the 2023 AFCON tournament on Friday.
