Premier League side, Manchester United, has reacted to Victor Osimhen’s performance in Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Cameroon in the round of sixteen of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
The Red Devils appear to have monitored proceedings as the African giants clashed on Saturday.
Epiczone.ng gathered that Ademola Lookman put Nigeria ahead in the first half and made a double late in the second half to hand the Super Eagles a well deserved 2-0 victory.
Manchester United goalkeeper, Andre Onana was an unused substitute for Cameroon in the game.
The Indomitable Lions boss, Rigobert Song, prefered Onana’s cousin, Fabrice Ondoa in between the sticks.
In their review of the game, Erik ten Hag’s side’s official website highlighted the role played by the Napoli forward in the build-up to Lookman’s opener.
“It was, however, the three-time AFCON champions who took the lead before the interval, with Osimhen initially showing great strength to hold off Oumar Gonzalez,” Manchester United wrote.
“The Napoli forward played in Lookman with a neat pass and the 26-year-old made no mistake from close range, tucking home despite Ondoa’s best efforts.”
Manchester United are among a host of clubs said to be interested in signing Victor Osimhen. Napoli have also confirmed the Nigerian could be on his way out of the Italian Serie A champions at the end of the season.
