    The Nigerian was a constant threat for Leicester and should have probably scored in the first-half after doing everything right except provide the finish in a lively individual display.
    But the finishes came after the break. He hung in the air for the equaliser, a Ronaldo-esque header. Yet it was his first goal that really stood out, as he lobbed the covering defender and then goalkeeper with consecutive touches.
    Osimhen’s talent was well known when Napoli smashed their transfer record for him a little over a year ago. But this sort of display showed why they were willing to spend so much. What a player he could become.
