‘Osimhen will shine if given the opportunity’

03 December 2015, 15:42

Lagos - FIFA U17 highest goal scorer at the just concluded 2015 U17 World Cup in Chile, Victor Osimhen has been tipped to shine at the ongoing Africa U23 Nations Cup in Senegal.

Osimhen's Golden Eaglets colleague, Funsho Bamigboye who they both won the FIFA U17 World Cup for a record fifth time for Nigeria told News24 in a chat that the ten goal hero at the World Cup will deliver if given the chance in Senegal.

Victor Osimhen was a late replacement for another former U17 and U20 team star, Isaac Success in Nigeria's U23 squad currently playing in the Africa U23 Nations Cup.

“I’ve played with Victor, he's strong but his real talent lies in his positioning and his goal scoring abilities. The world saw what he can do at the FIFA U17 World Cup which was won,” Funsho Bamigboye told News24.

"It's a thing of joy to see him get a call up to the national U23 team and I'm very optimistic that he will deliver when he gets an opportunity to play. He is an asset to any team he plays for," Bamigboye said.

Victor Osimhen is yet to feature after two matches Nigeria has played at Africa U23 Nations Cup but the team led by former Super Eagles striker, Samson Siasia started the tournament with a 3-2 win over Mali and a draw with Egypt in their second match.
