Victor Osimhen

Super Eagles Coach, Rohr is hoping that Victor Osimhen will continue to be an important player for the National team.

Osimhen scored thrice in the three-time African Champions wins over the Benin Republic and Lesotho in 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Rohr is however convinced that Victor Osimhen is on the right path to be the team’s new number 9.

“I think Osimhen is on the way to becoming a very important player for us as he scored more goals and he gave also his second goal to his friend, Chukwueze.”

“So he (Osimhen) is working very well in France and I see him often playing and speaking with his coach. We know he still has lots of work to do to progress because he is young and he can do more,” Rohr said.

He added: “He (Osimhen) changed the second half. It is interesting to see a 3-5-2 with Osimhen and Chukwueze as the twin strikers. So, the second half was better and this match is very important for the future.”

Following the two victories, Nigeria sits on top of Group L with six points, Benin Republic is second with three points, while Sierra Leone and Lesotho occupied the last two slot on the log.
