Although Osimhen was not in action yesterday as his club crashed to a 2:0 defeat to PSG, that did not stop fans talking about the value he currently adds to the national team and his long term potentials.
Even though the Under 17 World Cup winner will always have space for improvement at every stage of his career, he is currently churning out quality performances for club and country. When you see a young centre forward who is comfortable operating from the centre and the flanks, comfortable to score and create goals, comfortable to be the arrow head or to drop deep, then you know you have a potential world class player in your hands. This 20 year old centre forward is Ighalo-and-Emenike in the body of one person - power, pace and precision. Sadiq Umar, Onuachu, Olayinka, Maja; all these players are are currently behind Osimhen in the Super Eagles pecking order of strikers - this is not expected to change any time soon if Osimhen continues deliver the goods for club and country. The former Wolfsburg man has scored 7 goals in 13 league matches this season for Lille while he has no less than 4 goals in around 9 matches for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
