4 Strikers Super Eagles Should Consider To Back Up Victor Osimhen

Spread the love

Super Eagles are one of the most intelligently run national teams on the African continent today. With a clear style of play and a long-term outlook, they standout.

As it stands, Gernot Rohr is heavily reliant on Victor Osimhen in the striker’s role.

It’s a tricky assignment getting the proper back up for the Napoli man, but there are several viable options worth considering. Here, Ademetan Abayomi assesses four of the best.

Stephen Gopey

Gopey is a clinical finisher with intelligent movement, traits that would be fully utilised by Moses Simon and Alex Iwobi.

He would probably be open to lying behind Osimhen in the striking pecking order at Super Eagles.

Odion Ighalo

Throughout his career, Odion Ighalo has shone away from the limelight. He surprisingly retired from international football in 2019.

However, rumours persist that he might make a return. At 32 years of age, the speculation is a testament to the player’s longevity.

The veteran would be an exceptional, albeit short-term, back-up to Osimhen. He’d bring with him a wealth of experience and, in the latter stages of his career, he’d also be understanding of his place within the squad.

Taiwo Awoniyi

His scoring record may not strike fear into opposition defences, but the sight of Petagna on a pitch is something to behold. Awoniyi is a bullish centre-forward with the proportions of an uncompromising central defender. However, he also possesses the silky and vision of a creator.

His three goals in three Bundesliga games this season belied a strong, technically gifted line-leader. He looks to have a big future, and he’d suit Super Eagles.

Awoniyi’s barrelling runs, intelligent positioning, hold-up and combination play would make him an ideal alternate to Super Eagles’ first-choice finisher.

Olarenwaju Kayode

Kayode’s game is built upon his immense physicality. He has impressive power enables him to simply run through defences, while he is also outstanding in the air.

He wouldn’t be the most sophisticated option out there, but Kayode would give Rohr a completely outlet up front, something that could prove particularly dangerous from the bench if and when a chance in approach is necessary.
