Osimhen delighted with Eagles win, scores first competitive Senior Team Goal on Home soil

Victor Osimhen scored his first competitive senior team goal and on home soil as Nigeria fought from a goal down to defeat Benin 2-1 in their opening AFCON 2021 qualifying match.

Osimhen struck from the spot in additional time (45+1′) of the first half to bring Nigeria level after Stephane Sessegnon fired the visitors ahead inside the opening 3 minutes.

 


Samuel Kalu scored a spectacular solo goal (63′) to earn Gernot Rohr’s men a win and avoid a disappointing start to the qualifiers.

 

Meanwhile, Osimhen’s goal on Wednesday brought his tally for the Super Eagles to 2 in 8 caps, and the Forward took it all in with glee.

 

In his instagram message the morning after, the youngster posted:

 

Team performance na 💯 percent ✅on to the next one💪🏽we move
