In a sensational display of football prowess, Victor Osimhen, the Nigerian forward for Napoli, reached a remarkable milestone by scoring his 100th club goal during tonight’s game, Reelradio.com.ng reports.
The exhilarating match saw Napoli dominate with a resounding 2-0 victory over Sassuolo at the iconic Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
The Super Eagles sensation has etched his name into this hallowed list by becoming the 13th Nigerian footballer to achieve the remarkable feat of scoring 100 club goals.
Osimhen has proven to be an important player for Napoli in the last two seasons. He was key in the run-up to their Scudetto triumph last season, scoring 26 goals in 31 Serie A appearances for the Partenopeans.
Osimhen scored from the penalty spot in the 16th minute after Matteo Politano was fouled in the box. The Nigerian superstar had another opportunity to score from the spot in the 60th minute, but he left it for Giacomo Raspadori, who missed.
Nonetheless, Giovanni Di Lorenzo scored the second goal for Napoli in the 64th minute to give Napoli a cushion.
