Nigeria Super Eagles trio Victor Osimhen, Moses Simon, and William Troost-Ekong came out clean after an anti-doping test was conducted on them at the ongoing AFCON in Côte d’Ivoire.

The Guardian gathered that the test carried out on them did not detect any presence of a prohibited substance.

This means the three players are clear to feature for the Eagles against Angola head to head battle in the quarter-finals on Friday.

According to CAF, it is mandatory that the football body’s Doping Control Officer will conduct the sample collection in their capacity as a CAF Doping Officer following the COVID-19 new measures.

In principle, two players from each team will be tested at the end of each match by the CAF/FIFA Anti-Doping Regulations.

However, the CAF Doping Control Officer is authorized to select additional players for sample collection without giving any reason.

Also, the players to be tested shall be selected via targeted or random methods by the CAF Doping Control Officer.

These players are required to provide urine samples and blood samples, as requested.

Meanwhile, Friday’s quarter-final clash between the Super Eagles and Angola will be held at the Felix Houphouët-Boigny stadium at 6pm Nigeria time.
