Paris Saint Germain defender Marquinhos has identified Victor Osimhen as Nigeria’s most dangerous player ahead of Sunday’s international friendly between the two countries, reports Completesports.com.
The Selecao and the Super Eagles will do battle at the Singapore National Stadium, Kallang on Sunday.
Osimhen has hit the headlines this season in the French Ligue with Lille due to his impressive scoring form following his arrival from Belgian outfit, Sporting Charleroi.

The 20-year-old has scored seven goals in nine league appearances for Les Dogues.
He was voted Lille’s player of the month for September and has also been nominated for the Ligue player of the month for the same month.
” Nigeria have very physical and skilful players. Osimhen has done well at Lille. Virtually unknown before his transfer but now everyone knows him that shows he can be very dangerous. We have to put an eye on him”, Marquinhos told reporters at the Brazil training base in Singapore.
Brazil will face the Teranga Lions of Senegal on Thursday, before squaring up with the Super Eagles three days later.
