Osimhen Reaches Double-Digit Goal Mark; Atiemwen Opens Dinamo Zagreb AccountPublished: February 24, 2019
Round-up of the Nigerian players that got on the score-sheet in league matches across Europe on Sunday, February 24.
Victor Osimhen has reached the double-digit mark for goals in the league for the first time in his young career after finding the net, his tenth of the season, as Sporting Charleroi suffered a 3-1 loss at the hands of St.Truiden in a Belgian First Division A tie at Stayen (Sint-Truiden).
The home team established a two-goal lead after 31 minutes before the Nigeria international halved the deficit eight minutes before half-time.
Osimhen fired past the goalkeeper after a fine cross from Ali Gholizadeh and came close to grabbing an equaliser when his effort was saved by Kenny Steppe on 42 minutes.
