Nigeria international Victor Osimhen is upbeat that he can break or even surpass Rasheed Yekini’s Super Eagles record.

Yekini, who represented the country for 14 years, scored 37 goals for the Eagles in 62 appearances to remain the country’s record goals scorer, while Osimhen has 15 goals from 23 matches.

Having found the net on four occasions against Sao Tome and Principe in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game in June, Osimhen moved to ninth on Nigeria’s top goalscorers’ list – having found the net on 15 occasions from 22 outings since his senior debut against Togo in 2017.

“I used to say before that it will be a big shoe to fill, but with the kind of quality that I possess, and the kind of determination that I’ve acquired in my career, I think I can actually break it or even surpass it,” Osimhen told Naijafootballers.


“But it won’t be easy and that won’t make me the greatest Nigerian striker ever. For me, we still have the likes of Rashidi Yekini, Odion Ighalo, Obafemi Martins and the rest of them, but now I believe it’s my time and it’s my turn and I think I can utilise it very well.”

On his ability to score with his head, the Napoli forward added, “I’ve been practising a lot while growing up. Those that know me know I use my head to score more goals than I use my feet and the mask also gives me the confidence to go into any duel and score the headers. I think I will continue to improve as I keep using my head.”
