Ifeanyi Udeze, the Super Eagles legend, disclosed in an interview that Victor Osimhen might be grappling with confidence issues in Cote d’Ivoire.
Osimhen, with just one goal in three games and missing crucial chances, faces pressure affecting his performance.
Nigeria secured the second spot in Group A, winning two games and drawing against Equatorial Guinea, where Osimhen scored.
Udeze stated on Brila FM, “Osimhen is under pressure; that’s why he is trying everything possible to score. The pressure is affecting him, and his confidence level has dropped a little when facing the opponent’s goalpost.”
This weekend, Osimhen aims to regain scoring form and relieve pressure as Nigeria clashes with Cameroon in the AFCON round of 16.
