Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has named former Manchester United star, Odion Ighalo, among the legendary players who have worn the Super Eagles’ shirt in the past.

The other legends are Austin Jay Jay Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo and Obafemi Martins.

Osimhen, who has inherited the number 9 shirt worn by Ighalo, said that it is an honour for him to represent the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

“I wouldn’t say that we are the most talented because there have been legends that have played in the Super Eagles – the likes of Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo, Ighalo, Obafemi Martins and the rest,” Osimhen told Channels Television ahead of Nigeria’s 2021 AFCON tie against the Benin Republic on Saturday evening.

“I think we are just fortunate to be in the Super Eagles, and everyone here deserves to be here because we have been doing great in our respective clubs.

“For me, I feel it’s an honour to represent the country, so I think everyone is going to give their best [against Benin, Lesotho].”

Osimhen is currently the joint-top scorer in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers with four goals.
