Young forwards Samuel Chukwueze and Victor Osimhen, are targeting success in future Africa Cup of Nations.
 
The duo were part of Nigeria’s U-17 World Cup winners in 2015.
 
Chukwueze and Osimhen also starred as the Super Eagles won bronze at the 2019 AFCON.
 
Chukwueze, 20, made six appearances in Egypt and opened the scoring in a man-of-the-match performance against South Africa in the quarterfinal.
 
“When you pick up a medal in your first major tournament it is a positive sign of bigger things to come.

“Not so many young players get the opportunity to be in the Nigeria squad and even get a chance to play.

“I know with our squad we are capable of winning this competition in the future, and I really want to be a part of that,” he told BBC Sport.
 
Osimhen made just one appearance in Egypt, in the 1-0 win over Tunisia.
 
“Words are not enough to describe this feeling. I’m quite overwhelmed. We wanted the trophy, but this bronze medal is a sign that the future is bright and we are looking forward to it.

“I was looking forward to playing for my country, it’s a great feeling for me and my family. I thank the coach for the opportunity and I want to build on this,” he said.
