Yekini's Super Eagles record
Osimhen has been tipped to break Rashidi Yekini's record in the Super Eagles, which saw the late striker netting 37 goals for the three-time African champions.
Victor on the other hand has featured in 22 games for Nigeria netting 15 goals. This means he needs 22 more goals to equal Yekini's record.
He is also expected to lead the attack for the Super Eagles when they resume action in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
