Victor Osimhen has the potential to become the finest striker in the world if he maintains his present high standards, according to Patrick Paschal, the coordinator of Nigeria’s senior men national team, the Super Ragles.
“I’ve watched Osimhen since his days with the U-17 national team, and I’ve seen his game progress so much and grow to become one of Gernot Rohr’s first names on the squad sheet.” Paschal told NGNewsHub.com, “I am pleased with the rate at which he is maturing.”
“He’s quick, good with his head and both legs, and he’s gifted with a goal-scoring nose.” Osimhen isn’t the type of traditional centre striker that waits around the penalty box waiting for a long ball to score goals; instead, he drops back to assist his defenders and has good holdup play.
“As I’ve seen in previous Super Eagles matches, the Napoli striker has added something.” He is a leader on the pitch and in the locker room, and he leads the high press during games. He’s developing all the time in the Italian league and with the Super Eagles, which I think is beneficial for his career and for Nigeria,” Paschal, a former Super Eagles player, said.

“At the rate Osimhen is progressing, it won’t be long before he conquers the world as the best striker,” Paschal said. He checks all the criteria of a future world-class player, and I dare say he’ll win the African Player of the Year title sooner than expected,” said the Bauchi State Football Association Chairman.
Osimhen is one of the leading scorers in the Italia Serie A this season, with four goals and one assist in six games, as well as two goals in two Europa League games. And he is the man in charge of the Super Eagles’ quest for AFCON glory and FIFA World Cup qualification in 2022.
