“I feel great scoring a hat-trick for my country and also helping the team qualify for the next round, but now I just want to get back to my club and keep working hard and see what the future holds. I hope I get picked for the AFCON,” Osimhen told Completesports.com.

Osimhen faces real competition from Odion Ighalo the Super Eagles first choice striker and the rave of the moment Paul Onuachu, Henry Onyekuru, Moses Simon and Samuel Kalu in the Super Eagles attack.
The 20-year-old who attracted concrete interest from Italian giants AC Milan during the January transfer window but declined also believes he won’t be short of offers should he decide to leave Wolfsburg permanently in the summer.
