‘This guy is our present and our future’ – Nigerians sing the praises of Osimhen

The Napoli striker was the best player at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Tuesday as Nigeria booked their playoff spot in the CAF 2022 World Cup qualifiers 

Nigerians are singing the praises of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen following his man of the match performance against Cape Verde on Tuesday evening.

Osimhen’s performance helped Nigeria play out a 1-1 draw against Cape Verde, which sealed their place in the playoff round of the 2022 World Cup qualifier.

The 22-year-old put Nigeria ahead in the first minute before Stopira levelled the scores for Cape Verde four minutes later.

While the Super Eagles were unable to get the win, Osimhen’s performance stood out. Aside from the goal, the Napoli striker worked tirelessly and was a menace in Cape Verde’s defence line.

The former Lille man combined perfectly with the returning Odion Ighalo, setting up the Al-Shabab striker on a couple of occasions.

The opening goal capped off an all-round performance, and following the game, fans took to social media to shower praises on him.

It is not only at the international level Osimhen has impressed this season. The Nigerian is also firing on all cylinders at his club.

The 22-year-old has scored nine goals in 13 appearances for Napoli this campaign.
