The 25-year-old churned out an impressive performance against Baciro Cande’s side in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matchday four encounters.
Osayi-Samuel won the penalty that was converted by Moses Simon for the Super Eagles’ only goal of the game.
“When I got the ball, I saw there was space and moved into the box. In our trainings the coach always want me to attack and defend as well,” Osayi-Samuel told NFF TV.
“When I got the ball, I saw it as an opportunity for me to attack. My initial plan was to dribble past the defender, but he brought me down.
“Like I said I tried to give my best to the team and I’m happy that we won.”
Osayi-Samuel has made three appearances for the three-time African champions since making his debut against Portugal last year.
