Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has hailed Cape Verde for their performance against the Super Eagles on Tuesday, November 16.

The Blue Sharks put up a stand-out performance to grab a draw at the Teslim Balogun Stadium but that wasn't enough to take them through to the final phase of the qualifiers.

They needed the maximum point while the Eagles needed just a point to guarantee qualification.

Reacting to the well-contested encounter, Osimhen stated that he’s delighted to see the Eagles advance to the next stage, and gave kudos to Cape Verde for giving them a good game.

“Strong character from the boys, respect to the Cape Verdean team. Unto the playoffs now @NGSuperEagles” he posted on Twitter.
