Nigeria’s Coach Jose Peseiro has revealed that Victor Osimhen is the designated penalty taker for the Super Eagles, clearing the air on the situation in Monday’s game against Sao Tome & Principe where Emmanuel Dennis took up penalty duties.
Peseiro explained that Osimhen had allowed his teammate, Dennis, take up the role so he could register his first international goal.
Dennis won a late penalty with Nigeria well ahead (9-0) in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sao Tome.
The Attacker, in his sixth game for the Super Eagles coolly dispatched the penalty for his first goal and Peseiro thanked the good-hearted Osimhen.

‘Our Striker, You know that guy Victor Osimhen he plays for Napoli, I appointed him as our designate Penalty taker,’ the Portuguese Coach disclosed.
‘Today he could have scored five including from the penalty. He gave Dennis the opportunity to score, I like his humility, he’s a good guy with a big heart and I appreciate it. Congratulations and thank you very much.’
Osimhen scored four goals and also picked up two assists as Nigeria cruised past Sao Tome & Principe 10-0 at the Stade Adrar on Monday.
The win moved the Super Eagles top of group A ahead of Guinea Bissau who have four points from two games.

Props to Osimehn.

Whatever you say about the guy he bleeds green white green and he is genuinely a good person with a lot of character. He is really playing for the team.

That's interesting news because Dennis said that Ahmed Musa was going to take the penalty but Musa let him take the penalty.

Wow! TBH, I had expected Musa to take the pk given the circumstance. Now, I understand. That is why Musa is Governor to the players -- a servant leader.

Exactly. I believe Damunk mentioned this in another thread and this clearly explains why.

No Damunk speculated it was because "everybody loves Musa"

When in reality it was simply because he let him take the penalty.
