  1. First season, massive impact. Victor Osimhen has been showing great promises right from the U17 days after he scooped up almost the whole awards at the FIFA cadets world Cup, where the Nigerian U17 captained by Kelechi Nwakali clinched the trophy for a record time. So, I am not surprised with giant strides Osimhen has made over the years, he is destined to do more greater things in the future. Congratulations once again to the Super Eagles prolific striker, I wish him all the best. Cheers!
