Yekini’s Goals Record Will Cease To Exist Soon – Osimhen

Yekini’s Goals Record Osimhen

Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen says he wants to be remembered as one of the greatest strikers that ever played for Nigeria’s senior team.

The Lille striker, who has scored two goals in seven appearances for the national team, has set his sights on becoming the highest goal scorer ever for the country.

“I want to be remembered as one of the greatest strikers that ever played for the Super Eagles.

“A lot of strikers have come through the national team, the likes of Odion Ighalo, Obafemi Martins, Julius Aghaowa and the legend Rashidi Yekini and they did quite well.”

Rashidi Yekini is Nigeria’s all-time top scorer with 37 goals in 58 appearances, a feat the youngster is hoping to break.

“I want to really do well, and even surpass their goal tally for the national team.

“But it is not just about my ambition but also for the team to achieve everything they want to accomplish and what the country has set for themselves in terms of football and I’m working so hard to get there.”
