Osimhen makes history with Napoli as he reaches double figures in the Serie A

The 22-year-old has broken off the shackles that held him in the first half of the season and continued his incredible run of form in front of goal on Saturday

Victor Osimhen is now Napoli’s joint-highest scoring African in the Italian Serie A after he scored twice Napoli’s 4-1 win against Spezia on Saturday afternoon

The Nigerian international equals Kalidou Koulibaly’s ten goals for the Neapolitans- although he did it in 21 games in contrast to Koulibaly’s 210 games.

He has now scored ten or more league goals in consecutive seasons, having scored 13 for Lille in the Ligue 1 last season. Osimhen is the youngest player after Haaland to achieve this feat in Europe’s top five leagues in the previous two seasons.

Osimhen’s brace also takes his league tally to five goals in his last four games for Gennaro Gattuso’s team. The ex-Lille man scored his first of his two goals in the 23rd minute to put Napoli two goals up after Piotr Zielinski had opened the scoring.

The Super Eagles star then scored his second and Napoli’s third just before half-time, firing into the roof of the net after he was picked out by Lorenzo Insigne.

Osimhen has now scored in four consecutive league games for the first time in his club career. The Nigerian has managed to overcome Covid-19 and injury problems to hit form at the right time.

Spezia did threaten a comeback in the second half by pulling one back through Roberto Piccoli, but Hirving Lozano’s strike in the 79th minute killed any little hope they had left.

The result lifts Napoli into second place with 70 points from 35 games, although they’ve played a game more.

We now have two brilliant striker flourishing in their respective clubs but give them to Gernot Rohr to handle and watch how the Franco-German tactician will fail woefully in this simple task.

The NFF should start looking for a new Coach who can utilize the potentials of these bundle of talents we now have in the Super Eagles.

For me, Gernot Rohr is not the right man to handle such hot and talented goal machines we have.

Congratulations Osimhen, I hope your partner in destruction, Senior Man Kelz will lift the FA cup.

am happy seeing him hitting red hot form as the business end of the season approaches..
he should keep up the good form because Napoli would need him n other players in that difficult race for the top4 .
ac millan winning juve send a warning to the rest of Europe dt Italian league cnt be predicted, Juve dt was enjoying monopoly of the scudetto are now almost ending up in Europa..
its 3 games left n I see them climbing up, but i think it would be nice seeing cr7 n dt juve squad playing Europa cup next season..

B4 we blame Rohr, let's ask ourselves how many facilities,quality teammates or assistants way he get to compliment this "stars" of yours.

Sack rohr sack Rohr... On what basis.
He achieved all targets set 4 him.. And even qualifies with an extra game.. The man go kill himself b4 una go beleful.

Yes, he makes wrong decisions at times
But you are not with this players, he knows them better.

I hope he and Iheanacho keep up the good form because the big team will be in dire need of strikers soon.R.Madrid, A.Madrid,Mancity, ManU, Bayern will be in need of a top striker by the end of next season because their main men are ageing

I'm happy for him but why compare him to Koulibaly who is a defender?

Is Koulibaly's job to score goals?
