Victor Osimhen is disappointed with Lille’s exit from the Coupe de la Ligue following Tuesday night semi-final defeat against Olympic Lyon at the Groupama Stadium , reports Completesports.com.
The two sides battled to a 2-2 draw after 90 minutes with the hosts securing a berth in the final after a 4-3 penalty shootout win.
Osimhen laid the assist for Renato Sanchez’s opening goal for Lille and converted the fourth spot kick for Les Dogues.
The Nigerian forward will not have the opportunity of adding to the three goals he has scored for Lille in the competition following their elimination.
“We really fought, I think the penalty shootout is a matter of luck, we are eliminated and it hurts,”Osimhen told the club’s official website after the game.
The team gave everything and I think we also we deserved to win. We have to keep working.
Osimhen and his teammates will now shift their attention to Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash against champions Paris Saint Germain.
