Preseason Friendly: Osimhen Back To Fitness, Scores Again


Nigeria’s Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen has regained fitness and was on target in Napoli’s 2-0 win over Apollon Limassol of Cyprus.

The preparations continued for the Serie A title holders at the Castel di Sangro training ground as they continue their readiness to commence their title defence next week.

Kvicha Kvaratskhelia had some early powerful runs down the left and another of these moves helped set up Mathias Olivera to assist the Osimhen opener.

Simeone then avoided the offside trap to meet a Juan Jesus ball over the top and double Napoli’s lead.

The opening game of the Serie A season for the reigning champions is away to Frosinone on Saturday August 19.
