Victor Osimhen, the top scorer in the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations Cote d’Ivoire 2023, qualifiers with 10 goals, is undoubtedly the player to keep a close eye on throughout the competition.NYSC Portal

Named the best male footballer player at the recent CAF Awards, the Lagos native embarks on his third TotalEnergies AFCON campaign, describing it as the tournament of maturity.

Osimhen’s key asset lies in his exceptional speed with the ball, enabling long-range attacks and exploiting spaces left by the opposition.

His distinctive playing style, coupled with clinical finishing, has shone in the Italian championship.

Coach: José Peseiro

Taking charge of the Nigerian national team in 2022, Portuguese tactician Jose Peseiro will be working in Africa’s flagship tournament for the first time.JAMB Portal

A UEFA Cup finalist in 2005 with Braga, the 63-year-old is a pragmatic strategist.

Peseiro’s tactical approach draws inspiration from his playing days at Torreense club, advocating possession-based football with an offensive objective.

Emphasizing intense and immediate counter-pressing when possession is lost, Peseiro’s coaching philosophy aligns with the dynamic style embraced by his squad.
