FCT, Abuja - Prophet Joshua Iginla of the Champions Royal Assembly in Abuja, who correctly predicted the victory of President Bola Tinubu, has commented on the position of Super Eagles' Victor Osimhen.
In a sermon posted on his church's YouTube page on Friday, February 9, the cleric remarked that Osimhen, despite not being the primary goal scorer for Nigeria, was the most talked-about player on the Super Eagles team.
Prophet Iginla's comment on Victor Osimhen
Speaking on the striker, Iginla encouraged his congregation to consistently fulfill their roles effectively.
He said it is not always about being in the forefront but rather about fitting into one's position appropriately.
"There is a tall guy, a young guy, Osimhen. He is not the one scoring the ball, but he is more popular than the one scoring the ball because he is a team player. It doesn't matter who scored the ball. In life, if you play your role well, you might not look like the number one, but if you fit your purpose, you will be more celebrated."
The video featuring Iginla was released after the Super Eagles of Nigeria secured victory over the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in a match that concluded with a 4-2 result in penalty shootouts.
The regular 90 minutes and an additional 30 minutes of extra time had seen both teams playing to a 1-1 draw.
In the clip, the cleric also spoke on the Super Eagles's clash with Cote d'Ivoire in the final of the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
