Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro has hailed Victor Osimhen for his leadership qualities and confirmed the Napoli striker as the team’s first- choice penalty taker.

He takes over the role from Odion Ighalo, who last featured for the Eagles against Ghana in March, during the 2022 World Cup play-off.

Osimhen stole the show scoring four goals for the Eagles as they annihilated Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 at the Stade Adrar in their 2023
Africa Cup of Nations Group A qualifier in Agadir, Morocco last Monday.

The former Lille striker also made two assists in the encounter as the Eagles moved top of Group A with six points ahead of Guinea Bissau, who have four points from two games.
