Nigeria : Victor Osimhen believes he can break Yekini’s goal tally

Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen says he can break Rashidi Yekini’s goal tally with Nigeria.

Osimhen has been lethal for the Super Eagles since making his debut in a 3-0 victory over Emmanuel Adebayor’s Togo in June 2017.

These last months, the 23-year old showed that he is bettering his goal scoring abilities as he netted four during Super Eagles’ 10-0 win over Sao Tome in AFCON 2023 qualifiers’ matchday 2.

Speaking to Naija Footballers, Victor Osimhen was asked if he can break Rashidi Yekini’s record with Nigeria (37).

And the Napoli striker answered : “I used to say it before, it will be a big shoe to fill. But I think with the kind of quality I possess and the kind of determination I have acquired in my career, I think I can break it or even surpass it”, as per Pulse Sports.

“It won’t be easy and that would make me the greatest Nigerian striker ever. We have the likes of Rashidi Yekini, Obafemi Martins, Odion Ighalo, and the rest of them.

“But now I believe now it’s my time, it’s my turn and I think I can utilise it very well.”
