Osimhen becomes Nigeria’s all time Serie A top scorer

Victor Osimhen has scored 32 goals in the Italian Serie A for Napoli to become Nigeria’s most prolific goalscorer in the championship. The Nigeria international joined Napoli from LOSC Lille just over two years ago for an African record transfer fee recorded the landmark feat in the first half of Napoli’s 2-1 win over Atalanta in Bergamo. His compatriot, Ademola Lookman had shot the hosts into the lead from the penalty spot in the 19th minute after Osimhen handled the ball in the box, but he turned it around with a goal rising higher than La Dea’s defence line to head home the equaliser four minutes later. Osimhen broke away from Merih Demiral down the right and pulled it back for Eljif Elmas to take a touch and score from 10 yards in the 35th minute as Napoli fought back to win the top of the table showdown and go eight points clear.
