Osimhen Has An Incredible Physical Ability -Santacroce

Former Napoli defender Fabiano Santacroce has described Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen as a player with great physical ability.

He made this known on the backdrop of his impressive performance with the senior national team, where he netted a goal in the team’s 2-0 victory over the Central Africa Republic (CAR) in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

In an interview with TuttoNapoli, Santacroce said that the Nigerian international has the potential to recover balls and create attacking situations when they just don’t exist.

“Osimhen has incredible physical abilities,” the 35-year-old told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, as per TuttoNapoli.

“He manages to recover balls and create attacking situations when they just don’t exist. Other attackers wouldn’t be able to create what he does.”

    Danjuma has been called to replace an injured Bergwijn. I guess it’s all over now. Any hopes of inviting him in future is dashed lol.

    • Let’s watch out how it plays out.
      There’s the possibility of a turn around

      His heart was never really with us. He just used us as bait to get the attention of Van Gaal.

      • Footballfanatic 5 days ago

        True if he really wanted to play for us he would have signified his interest… We have capable players in his position. This qualifiers has taught us to have adequate replacements in every position incase of injury.

          Besides we have discovered Ejukes.Amoo is another good one and I believe there are more quality out there to choose from,Danjuma has always wanted Holland and I knew with his recent form it’s just a matter of time before he is invited by Van gal.

          Anyone watching the Ivory coast vs Malawi game? 9 minutes in and the Ivorians are up. None of these big teams are playing with small teams like we did. I hope we have learnt a valuable lesson. Goal by Nicolas paper in the 2nd minute..

            Nigeria has always been slow starters. I dont know why. Unlike northern and southern African teams. Even down to our youth teams and even our clubs when they play on the continent, we like doing Jelenke Jelenke and later, then midway into the half, up our game and turn on the heat gradually. We hardly go full throttle from the blast of the whistle, unless maybe when the opposition hits us early in the game.

    • If his heart is for us he will reject the invitation, Bassey rejected England u20 invite for Nigeria. Danjuma is never really for us

    May God in His infinite mercy expose and punish Pinnick if he continues leading Nigerian football for personal gains…Amaju is the 70% of Nigeria super eagles problem and not gernot Rohr guys.

    1. Amaju refuses to pay super eagles coach because of selfish gain.

    2. Pinnick will take money from FIFA and still went ahead to solicit from Nigerian governor’s to host the super eagles matches in order that the governor take over financial responsibilities for the match.

    3. Melvin will not pay the owing super eagles match bonuses completely but goes to the press shamelessly and announced that “we are owing nobody”.

    4.Pinnick never take gernot Rohr’s humble objection seriously when choosing stadium to host Nigerian matches thinking that he can do whatever he likes while toying with my feelings and happiness. Remember guys, Rohr and the super eagles players had always complained about the size of the pitches the Super eagles play their matches eg:Stephen keshi stadium.(Asaba), Samuel ogbemudia stadium (Benin) and this nonsense Teslim Balogun Stadium (surulere) but Melvin will never listened and do the needful…

    5. This same Amaju is not matured enough to understand on how to handle administrative issue eg: going to talk up Tammy and eze to play for Nigeria and quickly started posting pictures he took with the aforementioned players on social media knowing full well the implications it will attract from the English press. He made us loss them to lack of maturity guys!

    The same Melvin asked Rohr to take a pay-cut downward and be paid in naira instead of the initial dollars…

    Comes one day nemesis will surely catch up with Pinnick if he continues in this corrupt pattern of selfish Administration of Nigerian football and for toying with my happiness….I don’t support any club wholeheartedly but super eagles is my joy…

    Very intelligent, ‘Can’t wait to watch him against Torino on Sunday.

  • Against leicester, Victor was not just incredible but a handful. He just can’t stop scoring me thinks is his fault. Fabiano Lolo

    It is a screamer! “He manages to recover balls and create attacking situations when they just don’t exist. Other attackers wouldn’t be able to create what he does.” As Fabiano puts it.

    But he needs to be more clinical and the world will be at his feet.
