Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen has left the FIFA U-17 World Cup with a huge mark that has caught the world by surprise making him one of the most sought after youngsters by European clubs.
Golden Eaglets’ striker, Victor Osimhen has broken the long-standing FIFA U-17 World Cup scoring record of nine goals in an Under-17 World cup tournament with his goal against Mali in the finals. He also won the golden boot award with a total of 10 goals.
The ruthless striker firstly reached 9 goals after his goal in the 4-2 defeat of Mexico at the Estadio Municipal. The 9 goals record was previously jointly held by Frenchman, Florent Sinama Pongolle and Ivorian, Souleymane Coulibaly.
Osimhen is not only tall, he stands tall with his exploits as his three-goal salvo against Australia on Thursday morning showed that once again.
Nigeria may have unearthed another gem, following in the footsteps of Isaac Success and Kelechi Iheanacho, of whom great things are now been expected.
