Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen is looking forward to the Super Eagles’ AFCON 2023 Qualifiers clash against Guinea-Bissau, expressing his optimism about the game. The three-time champions are set to take on the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Friday, with the aim of securing qualification for the AFCON tournament.

In a recent interview with NFFtv, Osimhen emphasized that the team will not underestimate their opponents and will put forth their best effort to secure a win. He also shared that the players are in high spirits and are focused on qualifying for the tournament.

“I’m happy to be back with the squad, it’s an amazing feeling and we are expecting an amazing result in the two-legged game against Guinea Bissau,” Osimhen said. “We don’t underrate our opponent, we’ll give them the respect they deserve as a team and of course, we are ready, in high spirits, and ready to give our all in the game.”

He added that he hopes to contribute to the team with both goals and assists, but his main focus is on winning the AFCON rather than becoming the highest goal scorer of the tournament.

“I literally don’t care about being the highest goal scorer, the team comes first, and then, if my goals come and I eventually become the highest goal scorer, it’s a good and amazing feeling for me, the team comes first, and I want what’s best for the team,” Osimhen explained.

Osimhen is currently leading the goalscoring chart in the 2023 AFCON qualifying series with five goals, ahead of Senegalese Sadio Mane who has four goals, and Dango Ouattara of Burkina Faso and Jorginho of Guinea-Bissau who are on three goals respectively.
