Osimhen, the Napoli hitman who recently bagged the prestigious CAF Africa Player of the Year award, isn’t just a talisman; he’s the engine Peseiro hopes will propel Nigeria to continental glory, Footballrover reports

From our team, he (Osimhen) was the highest goal scorer during the qualifiers,” Peseiro declared at a celebratory dinner for Osimhen in Abu Dhabi.

He added;

“Of course, his teammates helped him achieve that. I hope and wish he wins the highest goal scorer and helps us win the tournament.”

Osimhen’s pedigree speaks for itself. He tore through the AFCON qualifiers, netting a staggering 10 goals, and his exploits in Italy have been equally impressive.

Leading Napoli to their first Scudetto in three decades while topping the scorers’ chart solidified his status as Africa’s hottest football property.

But while individual accolades are sweet, Peseiro’s ultimate dream is to paint the Côte d’Ivoire sky green and white. Osimhen, he believes, is the key to unlocking that dream.

His teammates celebrated him because they know what he brings to the team. He’s a leader, a fighter, and a goal scorer. We need him at his best, and I have no doubt he’ll deliver,” Peseiro said.

The Super Eagles will be facing a tough challenge, grouped alongside formidable opponents like Egypt and Ghana.
