    Kudos Victor Osimhen, more Grace bro!

    Eighteen minutes from full time, Osimhen doubled Sporting Charleroi’s advantage when he beat the offside trap before firing past goalkeeper Vanhamel.
    The 20-year-old has averaged 0.5 goals per game this season, having registered 15 goals from 30 appearances, an impressive goal return considering the fact he was yet to score his first senior goal as at September 21, 2018.
    With 14 league goals, Osimhen is now the joint- highest scoring Nigerian player in the whole of Europe, level on 14 goals with FC Midtjylland’s Paul Onuachu.
    The Ultimate Strikers Academy is the highest ranked Nigerian in the European Golden Shoe rankings with 21 points.
