After being ruled out for three months following surgery on face fractures suffered against Inter Milan in late November, Osimhen appeared destined to miss the competition, which is set to begin on January 9 in Cameroon.

He fractured his cheekbone and eye socket after colliding with Inter defender Milan Skriniar. He had titanium implants placed in his cheekbone and eye socket.
The 22-year-old attacker had proclaimed himself fit to fly to Cameroon, but his Italian club has requested that he not go.
