Peseiro assesses the performance of Osimhen after watching striker against Atalanta 

Nigeria manager Jose Peseiro has assessed the performance of Victor Osimhen during Napoli's 2-0 win over Atalanta in a Serie A match on Saturday, March 11.


The Portuguese football tactician was present at the Diego Maradona Stadium to run the rule over the Napoli number 9 and Ademola Lookman, who entered the game as a substitute in the 89th minute. 


One of the lasting images from the game was in the closing minutes of the contest, after Osimhen made way for Giovanni Simeone .


The Napoli number 9 was visibly disappointed at himself for failing to get on the scoresheet in back-to-back matches in the Serie A for only the second time this season. 


On the pitch, the highlight of his performance against the Bergamo outfit was providing the assist for Napoli's opening goal scored by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. 


Peseiro was delighted with the performance of Osimhen and underlined that he was the talisman of the Napoli side against Atalanta. 


Assessing the performance of the Super Eagles striker, Peseiro said to Sportitalia : "Osimhen seems to me to have played an excellent game.


"He didn't score, but he came close. And he made an assist. He fought, he was important for the team as always.


"His teammates had a great need for him, in fact, when there were difficulties they often looked for him. This time too he was decisive".


Barring an injury, Osimhen will lead the Super Eagles' attack in their upcoming 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches with Guinea-Bissau.
