Serie A: Osimhen Scores, Shines In Napoli Victory


Italian Serie A defending champions Napoli secured a 2-1 victory against the hard-fight Cagliari on Saturday evening at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen was the hero again as he was among the goal scorers in the keenly contested encounter.

After a wireless first stanza, it was the Nigerian International who netted the opening goal in the 69th minute before Pavoletti levelled up for the away side.

Osimhen played a vital role in the second goal as he made an assist for the Georgian International Kvicka to score the second goal and earn Napoli the full points.

The Nigeria forward is gradually regaining his old form and he has scored twice in the last two games for the Naples-based side.
