Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen confirmed his position as the hottest Nigerian player heading into the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt with a brace for Charleroi against Kortrijk to power them to a 2-1 win.
Osimhen scored in the 42nd and 56th minute to cancel out the opener scored for Kortrijk by out of favour Nigeria striker Imoh Ezekiel and the win takes Charleroi a step closer to playing in the Europa League.
20-year-old Osimhen now has 19 goals this season in the Belgium league with 12 goals from 25 games in the regular season and six in 8 games in the Europa League play-off. In the Belgium Cup, he scored once in two games.
His form has not gone unnoticed with Italian giants AC Milan lining up a move for him this summer despite the fact that Charleroi have a clause to sign him permanently in the summer when his loan spell expires.
Osimhen will be hoping to make the final Super Eagles squad heading to Egypt next month for the African Cup of Nations.
