Osimhen Setting Record In Serie A League


Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, has set a new record yesterday when his club was in head-on with Atlanta in a Serie A game in Bergamo. Osimhen scored a goal with an assist that lead his club to win the match, pushing Napoli to victory yesterday. The Nigerian international has so far scored seven goals during his last six games setting his club to retain its record in the Italian top clubs that are unbeatable in a game that ended in a 2-1 win against Atlanta. His counterpart Ademola Lookman netted the first goal for Atlanta in the 19th minute from a penalty spot setting his team into jubilation.

According to the Goal report, Osimhen in a revenge manner swiftly fired back at his opponent and set his club at parity in the 23rd minute into the game. 

The striker joined the Napoli club from Lille two years ago for an African record transfer fee and has so far set a landmark in the club.
Before the match against Atalanta, Osimhen was tied on the same number of goals (31) as fellow countryman Simy Nwankwo. 

With his new record yesterday, the 23-year-old has surpassed the former Crotone hero. 

Meanwhile, he has been receiving applause from his Twitter fans, especially Nigerians. 

Some of the monitored tweets read;
@Tee_classiquem1: “Victor Osimhen will be the first Nigerian player to win the Ballon d'Or, bookmark this tweet” 

@01Donoil: “What a player @victorosimhen9 has become never doubted his talent despite his early challenges in Europe as a teenager. If he manages to stay fit he will win the top scorer award and Napoli will be crowned champions. Big up Victor Osimhen” 

@ziyechman: “There’s no absolute way Victor Osimhen is from this planet. What a player.”
