2026 WCQ: Osimhen Or No Osimhen, It’s 11 Against 11  –Bafana Coach, Broos

Bafana Bafana of South Africa Head Coach, Hugo Broos, says he has no joy to derive nor pain to feel over Victor Osimhen’s absence from Super Eagles’ squad that will face his team in Friday night’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Uyo, Yabaloaded.com.ng reports.

Osimhen fetched the penalty with which the Super Eagles edged the Bafana Bafana side in the Nation’s Cup Semis in Ivory Coast last January.

Asked if he is relieved the task of facing the Napoli rampant forward in tonight’s clash following Osimhen’s confirmed absence, Broos said sharply that whether or not Osimhen plays is a concern for Nigeria not South Africa’s.

“That should be a worry for Nigeria, not for us. If he plays, we lose nothing. If he don’t play, we gain nothing,” Broos said.

“We came here prepared to play Nigeria, not individual player. So, we play 11 against 11, Osimhen or no Osimhen,” Broos said, with a gleeful disposition that there are no injury concerns in his team going into the big match tonight.
