Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen believes that the best is yet to come from the Nigerian national team at the ongoing 2023 AFCON in Ivory Coast.

With their eyes set on winning a fourth Africa Cup of Nations title, Nigeria has secured a spot in the quarter-finals of the tournament after a convincing 2-0 victory over Cameroon.

Osimhen played a crucial role in Nigeria’s win, selflessly assisting Ademola Lookman for the team’s first goal in the first half, and then sealing the game with two goals of his own in the 90th minute.

Despite facing criticism for missing several chances during the group stages, Osimhen’s performance in the match endeared him to Nigerian fans once again.

In an interview with beIN SPORTS, Osimhen acknowledged that the team has not yet showcased their best football but emphasized their winning mentality.

He expressed the team’s unity, stating that they view themselves as a family rather than just players.

Osimhen also highlighted the importance of respecting their opponents while maintaining the drive to win every game.

Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro has employed a 3-4-3 formation at the AFCON, with Osimhen often being isolated up front.

However, Osimhen commended the team’s defensive abilities, praising the focus of the defenders and the skills of their goalkeeper.

The team’s collective effort in both defending and attacking has been crucial to their success in the tournament.

So far, Osimhen has scored only one goal in the tournament, a header in Nigeria’s opening game against Equatorial Guinea.

Looking ahead, Nigeria will face Angola in the quarter-finals at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan on Friday at 6 pm Nigerian time.
