AFCON 2023: South Africa’s Furman names Super Eagles’ likely ‘star man’ in final FS News

Former South Africa captain Dean Furman has named Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen to be the ‘star man’ when Nigeria face Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday.

Furman said this after Super Eagles defeated Bafana Bafana in the semi-final encounter on Wednesday.

Osimhen, who failed to score against Hugo Broos’ side, has just one goal in the AFCON so far.

“First half [against South Africa], he [Osimhen] was quiet; second half, he came alive, did fantastically to win that penalty, and going into this final, they would need him to be on his A-game,” Furman said on BBC World Service.

“Technically, he is just getting under the ball; for a .er of his quality, you expect him to be on five, six or seven goals already by this stage of the tournament, and I would not write him off of being the star man of the final.”
