Super Egales of Nigeria and Napoli of Italy star striker, Victor Osimhen has expressed optimism on the chances of the Super Eagles winning the title at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

“The most important thing for us now is to go to Ivory Coast and win the tournament,” the 25-year-old declared at a dinner organised to celebrate his coronation as Africa’s best player at the team’s training base in Abu Dhabi on Friday night.
“I believe in this group, we have bunch of talented players to execute the job, fingers crossed and we are going to do so well.”
Osimhen was top scorer in the AFCON 2023 qualifiers with 10 goals.
The Super Eagles will face hosts Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau in Group A.
