International Edition By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 11/10/2019

Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos has revealed what Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen can cause any team ahead of Sunday’s international friendly between Brazil and Nigeria in Singapore National Stadium in Kallang.

The 25-year-old center-back will part of Selecao squad that played a 1-1 scored draw with Senegal on Thursday but they face Genort Rohr on October 10 in the same venue in two international friendlies in the Asain nation.

Osimhen has enjoyed a successful start to his  Ligue 1 career with Lille after scoring seven goals in nine league games where he has already scooped his club player of the month award for September.

However, former CAF Youth Player of the Year is also in line to clinch the Ligue 1 Player of the Month award for September, having been shortlisted along with Algeria international and Monaco striker Islam Slimani and Nantes’s Nicolas Pallois.

Marquinhos believed Osimhen can wreck his side if not properly marshaled as he told reporters at the Brazil training base in Singapore.

"Nigeria have very physical and skillful players. Osimhen has done well at Lille. Virtually unknown before his transfer but now everyone knows him, that shows he can be very dangerous.

"We have to put an eye on him”, Marquinhos told reporters at the Brazil training base in Singapore.

Osimhen is ready to take on five-time world champions Brazil international friendly match in Singapore October 13 before returning to Ligue 1 encounter to take on Toulouse in an away fixture.
