Super Eagles Serie A winning forward, Victor Osimhen, after his goal last night, met with football wonderkid, Tobenna Uchendu.
Young football prodigy, Tobenna Uchendu, who has put the football world in awe with his brilliant football skills at a very young age, has met Napoli’s talisman, Victor Osimhen, Soccernet.ng reports.
The now two-year-old, who has been rocking the entire world with the mastery of the ball at his feet at over just 24 months old. Tobenna is already two-footed, runs with the ball very well, and is never shy to take a shot on goal.
Tobeenna has been viewed on multiple sports channels and media houses across the world and met with World-Cup Winner, Enzo Fernandez, Reece James, and other Chelsea stars, has now met with Osimhen after the Nigerian striker scored a century of career club goals last night.
It was a memorable night for Osimhen and Tobenna, as his visit commemorated the celebration for the striker. Osimhen was also awarded the Serie A top-scorer award last night.
Tobenna’s father, Obi Uchendu, earlier, in an exclusive interview with Soccernet.ng revealed that he would love his son to have a kick of the ball with Osimhen and is willing to do whatever he takes.
The father made his request known to the Napoli striker on X (formerly called Twitter), and the striker responded with the statement; “I’ll see what I can do”.
After the Napoli game, Osimhen met with Tobenna and his family, and the two-year-old wasted no time in showing he was hyped to meet his hero.
Immediately Tobenna’s gaze fell on Osimhen, he stretched his arms and the Napoli star took the little boy into his arms, and assured the Father that the boy was born to be a baller.
