The Super eagles of Nigeria started their African cup of Nations qualifiers yesterday with a win after defeating Sierra Leone by 2-1 in Abuja Stadium. Jose Peseiro boys trailed early in the first half but Alex Iwobi equalized immediately before Napoli striker Victor Osimhen scored the winning goal for the super eagles.

Victor Osimhen made his 21st appearances for the super eagles, and his winning goal increased his goal tally to eleven in green and white jersey.

Rashidi Yekini of blessed memory is the highest goalscorer in the history of the super eagles with 37 goals and with all indications Victor Osimhen can break his record.

Osimhen is one of the best strikers in Europe at the moment, he is a target for top European clubs in this Summer’s transfer window.

The 23 years old striker will have to score 26 more goals to overtake Rashidi Yekini as the highest goalscorer in history of the super eagles.

Ahmed Musa (16), Odion Ighalo (16) and Kelechi Iheanacho(12) are the only active players with more goals for super eagles than Osimhen.
