COVID-19: It’s Boring Not Working — Victor Osimhen


Nigerian international and Lille FC forward, Victor Osimhen says it is quite boring not having the opportunity to do what he knows best, giving opposing goalkeepers tough time on the pitch.

He admitted missing football action so much due to the suspension of French Ligue 1 over the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, currently causing global health and economic challenges.

With the World Health Organisation (WHO) leading in making several recommendations and urging people to stay at home if possible to stem the spread of the virus, thousands of lives have already been lost while major activities across all spheres of life are at a standstill, including the French league where Osimhen currently plies his trade.

The Super Eagles striker has been in terrific form since arriving from Belgian side, Sporting Charleroi last summer to team up with the Great Danes.

So far, the 21-year-old’s former Flying Eagles’ player has found the net 18 times while providing six assists in 38 appearances across all competitions for the French side.

Before the forced break over the Coronavirus pandemic, Osimhen has been a prominent feature in helping Christophe Galtier’s men to fourth position on the log with only one point adrift of a Champions League qualification spot for next season.

The Nigerian, who started his professional career in Europe with Wolfsburg of Germany, recently took to social media admitting how he has missed playing football so much.

“I miss doing my job,” Osimhen posted on Instagram, accompanied by his image in Lille’s shirt during a game.

The youngster was part of the Super Eagles team that won bronze at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt after beating Tunisia to finish in third position.

He already has nine caps for the three-time African champions, scoring four goals since making his debut in June 2017 against Togo in an international friendly.
