Three exemplary players pushing for Victor Osimhen’s Nigeria Number 9 Shirt

Updated

Nigeria’s Number 9 Shirt should be in contention in the coming days though Napoli forward Victor Osimhen leads the pecking order of strikers in the Nigeria Super Eagles.

However, the likes of Samuel Chukwueze and Terem Moffi have offered impressive partnerships alongside Osimhen in the Nigerian National team.

But there are certain players that have got the capability to rival Osimhen for the Nigeria Number 9 position. And here Isagoal.com highlights some of them as the case may be.

The Arsenal loanee Balogun could be in line to make his mark if he chooses to play for Nigeria ahead of England.

But even if he does play for the West African side it wouldn’t be an easy feat for him to get into the team.

More especially with the likes of Victor Osimhen and OGC Nice’s New signing Terem Moffi in fine form.

But his goal-scoring form for French side Reims could endear him to manager Jose Peseiro even as he eyes a possible return to Arsenal’s first team for next season.

The Nice attacker has been in fine form for former side Lorient and his new employees (OGC Nice) all season.

He’s been outstanding in the French Ligue 1 especially with Olympic Marseille competing with English sides like West Ham United for his signature.

In Osimhen’s absence, he scored Nigeria’s solitary goal against Algeria in a friendly last year. And he could be a big deal to rival Osimhen for the Number 9 shirt in the coming days.

The talented young lad Gift Orban would be hoping to get a call-up to the Super Eagles for the first time in his career.

And his form is proving that he’s a good option for Victor Osimhen in Nigeria’s Super Eagles attack.

While the four goals he scored at the weekend against Zulte Waregem are a sign of his true goal-scoring instinct.

Just as his fame continues to make the rounds in the Nigerian media in view of his comparison with Napoli star Victor Osimhen.
