Osimhen wants to smash Yekini's goal record

Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen says he wants to be mentioned among best strikers that ever played for Nigeria.

Already on two goals, Osimhen wants to smash the record set by legendary Rashidi Yekini.

Yekini is Nigeria’s all-time top scorer with 37 goals in 58 appearances.

“I want to be remembered as one of the greatest strikers that ever played for the Super Eagles. A lot of strikers have come through the national team, the likes of Odion Ighalo, Obafemi Martins, Julius Aghahowa and the legend Rashidi Yekini and they did quite well.” The 20-year-old said.

“I want to really do well, and even surpass their goal tally for the national team but it is not just about my ambition but also for the team to achieve everything they want to accomplish and what the country has set for themselves in terms of football and I’m working so hard to get there.”

Osimhen will be hoping to increase his goal tally for the national team when they face Lesotho in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday.
