According to the video made available by the Super Eagles media team, Osimhen explained that the game will not be easy stressing that victory will be attained.

''It's a good feeling to be back in the squad and I'm really happy and I think the team is ready for the game on Friday against Sierra Leone.
''Nigerians should expect victory from us, but the game will not be easy for us and we have to prepare well and give everything to win this match.
''it's disappointing that fans will not be allowed to watch the game in the stadium, but we understand the COVID-19 situation and we will try our best.''

Victor Osimhen has been playing for the Super Eagles since 2017 and has so far featured in nine games for the three-time African champions scoring four goals.
