Victor Osimhen says he could not sleep after scoring his first UEFA Champions League goal in Lille’s 2-1 home loss to Chelsea last October.
Osimhen cancelled out Tammy Abraham’s opener in the 33rd minute but Brazilian winger Willian netted the winning goal for Chelsea 13 minutes from time.
“I didn’t sleep after scoring my first Champions League goal because after the game, we had a free day the following day,” Osimhen told Nigeria Info.

“I couldn’t sleep, when I go home whether we lose or win, I always go down on my knees to thank God. So I was thanking God when I got home, it is a memory that will linger forever and I called my friends and spoke with them until I slept off.
“Many of my friends are Chelsea fans, so they told me they don’t care if Chelsea win or not that I’m going to score my team’s only goal.”
