The Nigerian national football team, known as the Super Eagles, delivered a stunning performance in their recent Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against São Tomé and Príncipe.
The star of the match was none other than Victor Osimhen, whose exceptional performance, including a hat trick, contributed to Nigeria’s dominant 6-0 victory.
Osimhen’s hat trick not only secured the win for his team but also propelled him to become Nigeria’s fourth all-time leading goal scorer.
With a total of 20 goals, he surpassed the likes of Yakubu Aiyegbeni and Segun Odegbami, who recorded 21 and 23 goals respectively for the national team.
As the young striker continues to excel, Osimhen now has his sights set on breaking the national record of 37 goals set by the legendary Rashidi Yekini.
With his remarkable talent and determination, it seems only a matter of time before he achieves this feat.
However, Osimhen’s success cannot be solely attributed to his individual brilliance. The entire Super Eagles team showcased their prowess on the field, with goals also scored by Ademola Lookman, Taiwo Awoniyi, and Samuel Chukwueze.
