He acknowledged that goal droughts are common among strikers but remained unwavering in his commitment to the team’s success.

Osimhen remarked, “I know that when the time comes, my goals will come for sure. I know that one for sure. I’m a striker, I can go ten games without scoring which is normal.”

Undeterred by external opinions, Osimhen emphasized his primary focus on advancing through the tournament and ultimately lifting the AFCON trophy with the Nigerian team. He stressed, “I’m focused on making sure that the team continues to progress and get to our target which is winning the AFCON. This is what I am after.”
