Osimhen in a tweet after the game hailed the team spirit and looked forward to the game against Sao Tomé and Principé.
Nigeria came back from behind to defeat the Leone Stars as the Sierra Leoneans started like a house on fire.
Their early pressure paid off in the 11th minute when they took the lead through Morsay. The Nigerians bounced back almost immediately as Alex Iwobi drew the Super Eagles level.
Osimhen grabbed the winner and the team spurned several scoring opportunities afterwards.
