Super Eagles head coach has picked in-form Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen as Super Eagles penalty taker.
The Portuguese tactician reached the conclusion after a series of training on Wednesday night where he drilled Osimhen and Kenneth Omeruo on penalties for 20 minutes.
The three goalkeepers who were in camp (Francis Uzoho, Victor Sochima and Kingsley Aniagboso) took turns to man the goalpost but it was Francis Uzoho who got more concentration because he saved three out of the 10 penalties.
The training started with Possible XI (Team A) facing Team B with the aim of perfecting the strategy ahead of Friday’s Nigeria versus Guinea Bissau 2023 AFCON qualifier tie.
Nigeria will, on Friday in Abuja at 5:00 pm, slug it out with Guinea Bissau in group A top of the table duel in the 2023 African Nations Cup qualifier.
