“He plays like Drogba,” Emmanuel Eboue cautions Ivory Coast teammates in the AFCON final

Posted by

Victor Osimhen of the Super Eagles has been praised by former Cote d’Ivoire defender Emmanuel Eboue, who stated that the Napoli star reminds him of Chelsea icon Didier Drogba.

When Nigeria plays Cote d’Ivoire in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations final tonight, the former Arsenal player warned the Elephants about the threat that Osimhen would offer to them.

Eboue said to France 24 that “he reminds me of Drogba; he has a bit of the same style.” Both Osimhen and Drogba contributed significantly to the defense and gave it their best.

Playing against an attacker like this is challenging for a defender since you never know what he will do. A defender always presses the ball when they have it, according to Eboue.

At the AFCON thus far, Osimhen has performed admirably for Jose Peseiro’s team.
