I Want To Set A New Goal Record Surpassing That Of Yekini & Ighalo - Osimhen Reveals

Nigerian in-form striker, Victor Osimhen has revealed he hopes to set a new all-time goals record with the Super Eagles surpassing that of Odion Ighalo and late Rashidi Yekini.
The late Rashidi Yekini holds the record having scored 37 goals for Nigeria during his illustrious time with the Super Eagles.

The Lille striker has been widely regarded as a replacement for Ighalo, who quit international football after this year’s AFCON in Egypt.

During an interview monitored by SCORENigeria, Osimhen disclosed that he also wishes to be remembered as an Eagles great.

He said: “I want to be remembered as one of the greats, like (Rashidi) Yekini, Odion Ighalo and others,”

“I want to do well and even surpass their records.

“But it’s not about my own personal ambition, more about what the team can achieve. I believe I will get there."

However, Osimhen has maintained it will be disrespectful to be compared with Ighalo who he said has achieved far more than he.

“Ighalo is a legend. It’s disrespectful to compare me with him because he has achieved a great deal more even with all the pressure,” he said.

“He’s more experienced, while I am just growing and still have a lot more to learn.

“He has given me some candid advice and I am using them.”
