Osimhen, Chukwueze are Super Eagles Future
Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has marked Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze as the future of the Nigerian national team.
The duo of Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze are likely to lead the attack of the team against Ukraine in a high profile international friendly on September 10 with Rohr keen on trying out the youngsters as a reward for their impressive start to the season.
Rohr said: “The season is just starting so we will pick players base on how they have settled at their respective clubs. Osimhen and Chukwueze have started really well and we will be happy to play them in the attack, we believe they are the future of the team as well”.
Chukwueze opened his goal account in his team 4-4 draw against Granada last weekend while Osimhen got off the mark with a brace for French Ligue 1 side Lille on his debut two weeks ago.
