NIGERIA – Former Nigeria international, Yakubu Aiyegbeni has sent a message to the duo of young forwards, Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze.

The former Everton striker said he was impressed by the performances of the fast-rising Super Eagles stars.
“Obviously, one has to be impressed with how our players have been performing in recent weeks.
“It shows there are plenty of talent in the country and it will only be beneficial to the Super Eagles in the long run.
“For Chukwueze and Osimhen, honestly they have been massive for club and country and if they continue like this, I’m very confident they can go on to become one of the best players for the country.
