Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen netted four times as Nigeria crushed Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Monday.
It brought Osimhen’s tally for the Super Eagles to 15 goals in 23 appearances.
This has taken him above legends like Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo and Daniel Amokachi in the all-time top scorers’ chart.
