Exclusive: Africa’s Best Osimhen Can Lead Super Eagles To AFCON 2023  Glory  –Agu

Former Nigerian international, Alloy Agu believes Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen who recently won the Africa Footballer of the Year Award, can lead the team to glory in the fast approaching 2023 African Cup Of Nations.

Osimhen’s momentous victory marks the end of a 23-year drought for Nigeria, the last African nation to claim the continent’s highest individual footballing honour. Legendary forward Kanu Nwankwo secured the award for Nigeria in 1999.

Osimhen’s triumph is the culmination of a remarkable year, solidifying his position as one of the world’s elite footballers. He faced stiff competition from fellow nominees, Morocco’s Achraf Hakimi and Egyptian icon Mohamed Salah, but his consistent brilliance ultimately outshone them both.

However, Agu in a chat with Completesports.com stated that Osimhen has what it takes to lead Nigeria to glory.

“It was a great one. A very laudable achievement from a Nigerian. It’s an award that was well deserved

“I think Osimhen has always been an outstanding player. whenever he plays you can always see the hunger in him to deliver. It is not a new thing but daily routine.

“This also means his daily routine has been rewarded. So he will continue in that daily routine which I know will lead the Super Eagles to glory in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.”

  • Congratulation osibobo the Lord is your strength.

    Congratulations Osi. But truth be told Salah is far ahead of Osi . Truly Salah is a consistent world class player who has been performing for almost a decade now since his days at Italian club. Next year unless a miracle happens that sees Osi banging in goals from now on , I don’t see any Nigeria player matching Salah . Salah can dribble, can play a creative role, play as a winger, false 9, center forward, But our own Osi can not dribble and even remain useless when he is in the box. GRA GRA no be football oooo. Salah is the king of African soccer

      Osi can not dribble, who dribble ep? Okocha that dribbled how many best e collect? Football is not entertainment, it is business, it is all about results. Salah is good but the period under assessments our VO9 was far better than any other nominees there.

      I remember how consistent Salah was with Chelsea.

    • No wonder ur life remains stagnant. Foolish people comparing osi to salah.
