AFCON: Anguissa does not like to play long passes – Onyeka

Super Eagles midfielder, Frank Onyeka has revealed that striker, Victor Osimhen told him that his Napoli teammate André-Frank Zambo Anguissa doesn’t like to play long passes before Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Cameroon in the round of 16 of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Recall that Onyeka was impressive in midfield against Anguissa as Nigeria defeated the Indomitable Lions to qualify for the last-8 where they will face Angola on Friday.

Asked if Osimhen told him things about Anguissa, Onyeka said to The Hindsight Podcast: “Osimhen told me that he likes to play short, short passes and tries to connect.

“He doesn’t play long so when he gets the ball I try to close him as much as possible even Alex because we know that he doesn’t turn, doesn’t play long passes. He only tries to connect with the strikers with short passes.”

Onyeka added: “It has been good, I try to do my job as much as I can so I guess it’s working well so far. I’m really, really glad.”
