Osimhen supports Okafor
It seems Okafor's supporters focused more on the Nigerian flag in his shot than the Swiss one not being there.
Okafor has not responded to questions from the supporters, but now he has backing from a Nigerian.
Instead of responding to Nigerian and Swiss fans, Okafor continued with his celebration on social media.
He posted more photos from the title celebration, but this time without the Nigerian flag.
Okafor captioned the photo with a message that said, "Title dump.
Osimhen responded with a message of support that said, "Congratulations, brother."
Okafor put out a response that said "@victorosimhen9 thx my bro❤️."
Okafor, who is still 23-year-old hasn't played since April 16, but before suffering a metatarsal fracture, he had seven goals and three assists in 21 games.
