“What do you need to succeed in Europe? Good work ethics, skills, mental strength and focus. Osimhen has it all. He only needs some little bit of fine tuning and body strength. He will be a big hit in Germany just like Iheanacho is in England.”

Like Iheanacho, Like Osimhen

Meanwhile, the players have similar career path. They were both part of the Nigerian U-17 team. They are both U-17 World cup winners. While Iheanacho won the cup in 2013, Osimhen did in 2015. Also, Iheanacho and Osimhen both picked up the top scorer award at the World Cup. Also, they both secured transfer abroad after their respective tournaments. Although, the players have different styles, they both have a promising career for club and country.

Iheanacho has taken to life in the English Premier League like a duck to water and Amuneke who also trained Iheanacho at the U-17 level is backing the player to be a big hit in Germany.
