Super Eagles star, Nnamdi Oduamadi, has hailed Napoli attacker, Victor Osimhen following his heroics against Sao Tome and Principe in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.

The 23-year-old forward scored a super hat-trick to send Sao Tome to the cleaners in a group A AFCON qualifier that ended 10-0 in favour of the three-time African champions.

Oduamadi, who together with Victor Osimhen, Elkanah Onyeali, and the legendary Rashidi Yekini are the only players to hit a double brace in the colours of the Super Eagles believes the former Lille man is born to score goals.

“I’ve watched him (Osimhen) in Italy play for Napoli several times, he’s one player that is born to score goals,” Oduamadi told PUNCH Sports Extra.

“He just needs good service to keep scoring. I’m happy for him and I hope he scores more goals. He’s the best striker in the Eagles at the moment.”

Osimhen has now scored 15 goals in 23 caps for the Super Eagles and is now ranked 10th on the all-time leading top scorers chart.

The legendary Rashidi Yekini sits at the summit of the all-time top scorer's chart with 37 goals in 62 appearances.
