    Thank God for Osimhen!

  • Omo9ja 2 years ago

    Thank God for his mercy. Now, the confidence is back.

    Ignore Super Eagles call and focus on your career first Osimhen.

    You have to do it one step at a time.

    Tell Oga Rohr that you need to be more focuse in your club football and when you eventually settled down then, you will be available for Super Eagles call but for now, mba.

    By God’s grace, you will be available for selections when we qualify to Afcon tournament but for now, let Oga Rohr find another options for the Super Eagles.

    I’m so happy for you Osimhen. Keep it up. God bless Nigeria!!!

      Very correct make the boy no go sustain another injury. Let the old Man find a replacement. What if he is not back from injury won’t he look for other options. At least their is Sadiq Umar, Iheanacho and few other strikers

      • @Omo9ja and @Sean T, You people are talking like children. Please if Osimhen is fit he will be selected its that simple.

  • Good Weekend For Nigerian Players/Super Eagles At Their Various European Clubs..Iheanacho,Sadiq Umar,Onuachu And Victor Osimhen All On The Scoring List

    Osimhen scored because he was assisted, its not rocket science.

    His playing style reminds me of Harry Kane. He can score spot up and or when ahead of defenders like in this game. But cant really dribble the ball past players, for long without being halted by players and or turning over the ball. His playing style rely on midfielders to pass him the ball, but they don’t. You can see his frustration, throwing his hand on his head and the look of disappointment.

    When he played with Lille all the players were assisting him which lead to him scoring, he had good teammates. Now Lille is now in first position of ligue 1 and have a player tied for 1st place in assist. I don’t see any napoli player on top of the assist chart in serie a.

      Agree with you. they don’t pass the ball to any one. Every one of them wants to score. They play individual game. Very horrible to see the way they play. The coach must do a better job making the team out of them.

    • Sean T 2 years ago

      You’re very right. All of them want to score. By doing so they’re denying their main striker opportunity to score.

  • Congratulations to Victor Osimhen on scoring again. Hope this goal will open the way for him to score more goals this season.

  • Where are the people saying Osimhen should not be included in the SE team to play Benin.. Oh wait it is everybody on this thread. Needless to say I was right “Osimhen is not a child learning to walk in football he is the most expensive player in Africa” and should not be underestimated especially by his own people.

    Osimhen Carry go. You will explode again against Benin..So will Kelechi. Please people should stop all this Cyril Dessers talk he is still learning to walk
