Former Nigerian Midfielder Says Osimhen Will Meltdown Brazil Defence


Ex international, Henry Nwosu believes Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen has the potential to meltdown the defense of the Samba Boys of Brazil in the October 13 international friendly game.

Nwosu stated this on the back of Osimhen’s impressive goal form for his Ligue 1 club, Lille, where he has scored seven goals in 10 appearances in all competitions this season.

The former Golden Eaglets star netted in his team’s 2-2 draw against Nimes at the weekend, to become the first player to score in each of his first five home games in Ligue 1 since Alex (Dias) with St Etienne in 1999.

Recall that he also scored his first goal for the Super Eagles in the team’s 2-2 draw against Ukraine in an international friendly game in September.

Nwosu told Soccernet.ng that Osimhen would replicate his goal scoring form against a star-studded Brazil side in Singapore on Sunday.

“I am proud that we have a quality striker in Victor Osimhen who has been banging in the goals for Lille in the French League,” Nwosu told Soccernet.ng

“Playing in his first season, Osimhen has shown his determination to achieve greatness and I am glad he’s in good form to face Brazil in Sunday’s international friendly encounter in Singapore.

“No doubt, he will cause all sorts of problems for the Brazilian defenders regardless of their experience. He has what it takes to shoot down the Brazilians and further put himself in the spotlight of the round leather game.
