Osimhen surpasses Ighalo, Musa, and Siasia as the Super Eagles’ all-time leading scorer [Top 11]


Victor Osimhen of Napoli has now scored an astounding 17 goals for Nigeria in international competition after scoring twice against Sierra Leone in Sunday’s AFCON qualifier for the 2023 tournament.

Osimhen has now surpassed the likes of Samson Siasia, Ahmed Musa and Odion Ighalo on the Super Eagles’ all-time top scorer’s goal chart.

Recall that Nigeria defeated Sierra Leone 3-2 in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium, Monrovia, on Sunday evening.

Osimhen’s brace and Kelechi Iheanacho’s strike ensured the Super Eagles won against Sierra Leone.

Osimhen’s two goals against Sierra Leone moved him above Ighalo, Siasia and Musa in the all-time top scorers’ chart.

Osimhen is, however, behind the likes of Rashidi Yekini, Yakubu Ayegeni, Ikechukwu Uche and Obafemi Martins.

Here is the current top 10:

1. Rashidi Yekini – 37 goals
2. Segun Odegbami – 23 goals
