Osimhen hits Flying Eagles camp for Burundi

13 April 2016, 17:50Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Victor Osimhen strolled into the Serob Legacy Hotel camp of the Flying Eagles minutes before kick –off of the UEFA Champions League match between Real Madrid and his German club, VFL Wolfsburg on Tuesday night.

He was very confident of his team winning, knowing that it held a 2-0 first leg advantage, but was disappointed to see Cristiano Ronaldo produce another of his magic to give the Les Merengues a 3-2 aggregate victory.

The FIFA U-17 World Cup record scorer was really disappointed with the scoreline but he is more focused on the task ahead. After scoring 10 goals at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile, Osimhen returns to familiar terrain with former team mates as the build up to the FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea begins in earnest.

As early as 6.45am on Wednesday, Osimhen and team –mates were at the FIFA Goal Project pitch at the Package B of the National Stadium, Abuja for Day 7 of the Flying Eagles training.

He looked quite trim and fit till the end and told the media afterwards that he is ready to go.

"l am here to show the coaches what I can do. I have trained very hard to be here and just want to play football," he said with a smile.

The Flying Eagles will take on Burundi in their first match of the 2017 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifying series away in Bujumbura on the weekend of 20 -22 May.

Presently, over fifty players are sweating it out twice daily as the battle for shirts intensifies
