Former Arsenal Goalkeeper Assists Victor Osimhen To Score His First Goal In Serie APublished: October 17, 2020
It has taken Nigeria international Victor Osimhen only 161 minutes spread across three matches to open his goalscoring account in the Serie A, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.
Napoli's record acquisition in history bagged his first goal in the Italian top-flight as the Blues thrashed Atalanta 4-1 at Stadio San Paolo on Saturday afternoon.
Osimhen fired blanks on his debut vs Parma on September 20 and also failed to score when he made his first start against Genoa the following weekend.
It was going so well for Napoli inside 30 minutes with Hirving Lozano netting a brace and an additional tally from Matteo Politano giving them a 3-0 lead and the scoreline became more emphatic when Osimhen added a fourth.
In the 43rd minute, the Super Eagles star chested a long ball upfield from former Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina, then turned and drilled low into the bottom corner.
Atalanta pulled a goal back through Sam Lammers in the 69th minute but it only ended up being a consolation goal.
Osimhen made way for Andrea Petagna with eight minutes remaining.
