Osimhen becomes Nigeria’s all-time leading scorer in Serie A.

Victor Osimhen became the most prolific Nigerian scorer in the history of the Italian championship with his 32nd Serie A goal on Saturday for Napoli.

The Nigerian international made history during Napoli’s 2-1 victory over Atalanta in Bergamo. He joined the club from Lille just over two years ago for an African transfer record fee.

After Osimhen handled the ball in the box in the 19th minute, his compatriot Ademola Lookman gave the hosts the lead from the spot, but he turned the tables four minutes later by heading in the equalizer with a goal that rose higher than La Dea’s defense line.

In the 35th minute, Eljif Elmas took a touch and scored from 10 yards as Napoli fought back to win the top-of-the-table match and go eight points clear. Osimhen had just outrun Merih Demiral down the right, and he had pulled the ball back for Elmas.

Osimhen and Simy Nwankwo, a fellow countryman, were level for the lead in goals (31) going into the match against Atalanta.

However, the 23-year-old has already surpassed the former Crotone hero with his goal from last Saturday.

Obafemi Martins, a former striker for Inter Milan, scored 28 goals, while Stephen Makinwa and Victor Nsofor each scored 16 and 14 goals for Atalanta and Chievo Verona, respectively.

Victor Osimhen’s Playing Style and Didier Drogba’s Reaction

Didier Drogba, a veteran of Chelsea, has commented on Victor Osimhen, a forward for Napoli, and his sense of teamwork.

The Super Eagles attacker was seen in a video deciding to award his teammate a penalty that he had earned on his own during the game against Ajax. Drogba praised Osimhen for his selflessness, saying that the Nigerian’s deed was also an example of teamwork.

Osimhen has been in outstanding form ever since moving from Lille to the Serie A team. He has scored a total of two goals this season, which is both the most in Serie A.
