Osimhen Scores Acrobatic Goal In Napoli Win Against Crystal Palace


Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen scored an acrobatic goal as Napoli beat Crystal Palace 3-1 in a tune-up game in Turkey on Sunday.

The Premier League side had a good start, testing Alex Meret with Ebere Eze’s volley before Wilfried Zaha’s angled drive opened the scoring.

Moments later, Osimhen drew level with a spectacular effort, flicking the ball in the air over the head of Will Hughes to turn among defenders inside the box until firing in from a tricky angle.

It started raining heavily for the second half, which saw both teams make numerous substitutions.

Mario Rui made a decisive block on Doucoure and a deflected long-range Leo Ostigard effort forced a save, but Giacomo Raspadori took centre-stage with a powerful strike into the roof of the net and turned in the third on a low Zanoli assist rolled across from the right.
