Peseiro Defends Osimhen For Firing Blanks

Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro has defended Victor Osimhen for firing blank during Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations clash with the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau.

The first leg ended 1-0 in Abuja in favour of the visiting Guinea-Bissau.

However, the Super Eagles were able to win the return leg by a goal in Guinea-Bissau with Osimhen leading in strike.

The Napoli star’s failure to score in both legs has come under scrutiny, forcing Peseiro to reiterate his importance in the football world.

“Victor is the best striker in Europe, but it happens (not to score a goal),” Peseiro said during his interaction with the media after the game.

“He fights for the team, but he feels more pressure in national team than in Napoli, that’s not good.”
