Super Eagles Head Coach, José Peseiro believes that Victor Osimhen can lead Nigeria to success at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, platinumnewsng.com is reporting.

The 2023 Africa’s Best Player and Napoli talisman was an integral part of the team and played a vital role in the Super Eagles’ qualification for this year’s edition of Africa’s biennial tournament, netting 10 times to emerge top scorer in the qualifiers.

Speaking during the dinner organised to celebrate the 25-year-old striker’s coronation as Africa’s best player at the team’s training base in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on Friday night, the Portuguese gaffer stated that the in-form marksman’s presence will be crucial for the three-time African champions at the competition while also tipping him to win the Golden Boot award in Cote d’Ivoire.
