    There is one unique attribute of osimhen that made me realise that he will stay the race from the under 17. He is not the static kind of striker. He is a full upgrade of Jude ighalo as regards mobility. Always looking at channels to run into thus drawing defenders away from their position. It is these kind of movements that will always delight a coach even when the striker is experiencing a drought in front of goal because he will be creating gaps for others to run into. All Victor needs is someone that will feed him with the right passes and see him gallop away like the son of Rashidi yekini of blessed memory. Keep proving yourself boy, till the Real Madrids of this world will take notice, then you go there as a known figure thus giving you leaverage to stake a claim for a starters spot. Up SE

    • @Joel Chidi, you said it all. Osimhen is very fast and his positioning for that goal was spot on.

      We have not seen the best of that guy yet, with him goals are guaranteed. He is the next big thing to happen to African football. Will make name like Eto, drogba and the rest. He’s a real deal and a delight to watch. His work rate is what excites me most.

  • The way Victor is scoring goals i think he stands in better position of winning European Golding boot this season only if he can score at least 3hatricks,5 doubles then he is there with his goal rates,i wish him all the best,

    the potential is there. if properly nurtured he is capable of playing at the highest level. he will eventually play for teams such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool etc. osimihen, Kalu,samuel chukwueze, aribo, ndidi and and iwobi are the future super eagles.

    With Osimhen’s performance against Ukraine along with his excellent start to the season. England can have Tammy Abraham because he’s definitely not benching Osimhen in the present SuperEagles. His pace is electrifying. And I’m sure most SuperEagles fans saw how our attack played with pace I mean real pace against Ukraine reminiscing of the SuperEagles of the 90s. This is the top striker Nigeria have been waiting for a long time. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE.

      that was why I said earlier that the thought of having osimhen, kalu, chukwueze with Iwobi playing from behind, Will be too much for any African side to handle and will take a top nation in huge form, to stop them. These guys have pace and the major player that is going to help them express that pace better is Victor because of his tendency to open the play from the channels thus allowing these other players to find enough space to attack. The future is truely bright for the S.E
