Former Nigerian striker, Jonathan Akpoborie believes the consistent goal scoring form of Super Eagles forward, Terem Moffi with Lorient in France, will create stiff competition for Victor Osimhen in the senior national team.
Moffi, who is expected to lead the Super Eagles attack in today’s international friendly game against Portugal, has netted 10 goals for Lorient in Ligue 1 this ongoing season.
However, in a chat with Completesports.com, the former Wolfsburg star stated that Moffi has what it takes to battle Osimhen for the number 9 starting shirt in the Super Eagles.

“I have watched Terem Moffi closely and I admire his hunger and determination to score goals.
“His style of play is quite different from other Super Eagles strikers and I believe he will be of great asset to the team. No doubt, he will give Osimhen a serious competition for the team’s number 9 shirt.”
“I expect him to take his chances playing against Portugal if he just remain in Jose Peseiro’s mind for a long time”
Moffi and his teammates will have to contend with watching from their homes when hostilities begin in Qatar this weekend.
