Osimhen’s Late Goal Against Torino Secures Napoli’s Eight Straight Serie A Win 

Osimhen’s Late Goal Against Torino Secures Napoli’s Eight Straight Serie A  Win 

A late Victor Osimhen’s towering header sealed a hardfought 1-0 for Napoli which saw them record their eight consecutive win in the Serie A this season, Completesports.com reports.

Napoli are now the only team in Europe’s top five leagues with a 100 per cent record and reclaim first position from AC Milan as they have 24 points.

Also in action in the encounter was Osimhen’s Super Eagles teammate Ola Aina who played for 90 minutes.

It was Osimhen’s fifth goal in seven appearances so far in the Italian elite division this season.

Osimhen now has eight goals in nine games in all competitions for Napoli.

With nine minutes left in the game, Osimhen emerged the hero for Luciano Spalletti’s dominant side.

Kalidou Koulibaly’s back-heel flick sent Dries Mertens down the left, his cross was charged down, then Eljif Elmas deflected the attempted clearance for the ball to bounce up and the Nigerian hung in the air to nod past the Torino keeper.

Napoli would have scored in the 27th minute after they were awarded a penalty but Lorenzo Insigne saw his effort saved.

It was Insigne’s third miss out of five attempted penalties this season.

In the 56th minute Napoli had the ball in the net with a smart free kick routine, Mario Rui whipping the ball across the six-yard box for Di Lorenzo’s header. However, after a very long VAR check, it was ruled marginally offside.

    Osimhen was the only one putting in work, the rest of the supporting cast wasn’t really doing anything. I saw Osimhen hustling, all the rest were doing was creating errors, fumbling the ball and pass the ball to Osimhen but not support him in a way. Lorenzo did a lazy penalty, second missed penalty.

    I saw Oismhen get passed the ball and no other teammate was near him, he was surrounded by 5 Torino players. You can also hear the displeasure from the crowd. But Osimhen brings energy and athleticism, 8th goal of the season, 5th in serie a. It was a similar goal to what he did to Leicester dunking on Soyuncu. Napoli is currently on a winning streak

      Insigne missed the penalty not Lorenzo

        Football expert.. lolllz

        His FULL name is LORENZO INSIGNE.
        No dey cast yourself

         
  • Osimhen will always Excell where he is shown love and believe….He likes playing under pressure infact he trives where he is given responsibility and he is gradually been given exactly that now at Napoli…….All Napoli’s balls are directed at him in today’s match to show you they are gradually relying on him now unlike last season……. Penalties taking responsibility should also be given to him as Insigne has lost two in a row now.

     
    • Has actually lost 3 out of 5 now,Osimeh should take it now

       
    • I doubt if the Italian sentiment will allow them hand him penalty duties.

       
      • Don’t rule it out man,Naples is like a country inside a country,they are very much detribalize and detest racism. If he keep going at this rate,he will be given further responsibility like taking penalties.

    I watch the game. Osimhem has turn Napoli to a title contender. Scoring goals whr they do not exist.

     
    • Coachie 2 months ago

      I also saw the game bro, infact anytime am chanced i don’t miss their (Napoli) games. The guy was his usual beast all through 90mins. Guy, i actually don’t know where that boy gets his energy from, he never gets tired.
      All i want him to do for himself and for us now is to just put in extra work to always improve. Whatever he has achieved now, i believe there is still plenty room for improvement, that’s the kaizen principle (continuous improvement).
      The guy is going places menhhhh. I pray you will rule the world our dear Victor Osihmen.

        “Guy, i actually don’t know where that boy gets his energy from, he never gets tired”.

        ???

        Person wey been dey sell pure water for Lagos traffic before naim you no know how him get energy now?

         
  • If Victor oshimen can at least share penalty responsibilities with his captain, you can imagine the number of goals that could come from there. Where ever C Ronaldo has gone, he has always taken the penalty kicks thus adding to his numbers. His shoulder is broad enough to carry the added responsibilities. He thrives under such circumstances. Wishing you well bro

     
  • What a jump there. Higher than what Ronaldo did.

     
  • Kingsley Micheal and Samuel Chukwueze return from injury today for Bologna and Villarreal respectively……Nice to see both of them back

     
    • Adeleke 2 months ago

      What better way to put it? While Osigooooals was scoring, Chukwueze lost it but as a Nigerian, he needs to up his game to get a full game time under the no nonsense coach Rohr. Shiiiiz

       
      • Unicorn 2 months ago

        Calm down expert. Chukwueze played 12 minutes, Completed 1 dribble and created 1 Goal scoring chance.

        He was infused into the game as a form of full recovery from his lengthy injury not because he’s not good enough yet he still did something. Note, he was not in anyway responsible for the Late goal they conceded as well. Stop painting it like he was that bad.

         
        • Chukwueze is back! Thats all that matters.
          He wont waste any time in getting his position back from whoever has been occupying the position in his absence.
          He Is still the best outlet in villareal.

           
    • Fool, stop dropping innocent people’s name here. Why are you always stupid. Today is the Victorious Victor Osimhen and not your quack tribal men who don’t even know where the 18yards is. GOAT!

       
      • Chinenye 2 months ago

        @Stan you IQ is beyond equivalent to that of an imbecile. The person you attacked aired his opinion with his phone and data. Focus on the opinions of you and your fellow morons(Igbo haters) or are your opinions really that inconsequential you had to checkmate on others who are not praising your mini god Osihmen

         
    • Aleks 2 months ago

      Unfortunately, Kingsley Michael sustained a more serious injury (fracture of the fibula) only 15mins after coming on. Not sure how long he’ll be out, but it sure looks bad and long term.
      I pray for quick recovery for the young man.

       
  • Coachie 2 months ago

    ..and in other news, has anyone noticed that Kelechi Nwakali is beginning to rake in some minutes at Huesca, I don dey observe am for some 3 weeks now. Yesterday, he came on at 67mins. I just pray that boy calms down, get to work and become again the Kele we use to know.

     
    • Damian 2 months ago

      Struggling to bounce back is one of the most difficult thing to happen. No sane person allows that. Today is wholly Victor Osimhen. Do well to keep those tribal lilliputians to the east of the forum. Try it.

       
  • glory 2 months ago

    This boy has a room in the air, where he waits to head those very high travelling balls. JUST CALL HIM OSIMENEGOOOOAAALLLS….

     
  • @glory He has a good leap just like CR7 and they both have straight legs which makes them not to get injured on returning to the ground……If you don’t have the leap and posture to attempt such a jump and you try it then you might damage your ankle or any leg muscle if your flight is altered.

     
  • pompei 2 months ago

    AIR-SIMHEN rented an apartment in the air to wait for that ball.

     
  • Adeleke 2 months ago

    That moment you feel A nigerian, Osigooooas made again. Now lets keep our fingers crossed while waiting for Roma to keep labor part of the already accepted bargain. Shiiiiiz.

     
    • Kenson 2 months ago

      You sound like an artist writing in patua. Joining you in the Osigoaaas song, leke. Nothing do you as the devil is headed to the parking lot.

       
  • KangA 2 months ago

    “. . .and the Nigerian HUNG IN THE AIR to nod past the Torino keeper.” That seems to be an antigravity maneuver. I’m beginning to think Osimhen may have inadvertently unlocked some laws of physics.

     
    • Adeleke 2 months ago

      Yeah!You garit, Shiiiiiz!

       
      • Shile 2 months ago

        Now will are holding on to a straw, which isn’t met to be so going by the original plan. When is Spalleti telling us how he felt about Victor’s goal hu?

         
  • AWONIYI’S GOAL WAS ALSO VERY GOOD. AWONIYI HAS REALLY MATURED AS A STRIKER IN GERMANY. HE KNOWS HOW TO FREE HIMSELF FROM DEFENDERS ATTENTION AND HIS FINISHING IS WITH AN AIR OF CONFIDENCE.
    HIS CELEBRATIONS ARE LOW KEY, I GUESS HE IS WAITING FOR HIS TARGET TO BE REACHED.
    I CANT WAIT FOR BOTH AWONIYI AND OSIMHEN TO REACH DOUBLE FIGURES FOR BOTH THEIR CLUBS.
    LETS NOT ALSO FORGET BIG NUMBER 9 SADIQ UMAR WHO IS ALSO SCORING LOADS OF GOALS. ALBEIT IN THE SPANISH SECOND DIVISION.
    I FEEL THE SUPER EAGLES COACH SHOULD GO OUT AND LOOK FOR QUALITY CREATIVE MIDFIELDERS IN THE TEAM TO COMPLIMENT THESE ATTACKING PLAYERS.

     
  • Larry 2 months ago

    SE top strikers in top 5 leagues are really doing great.

    Awoniyi 6 goals in Bundesliga (9 goals total). Zero penalty goal
    Osimhen 5 goals Serie A (8 goals total). Zero penalty goal

    These two guys have been banging all sorts of goals since their U-13 days. Two strikers with multidimensional style of attacking their opponents. Nacho knows these guys better and a very serious Nacho can be very useful in bringing out the best in them.
    I hope one day the nff gets serious and hire a highly technical coach with a winning mentality that will enable SE players replicate thheir club performance and even upgrade them to a level where SE becomes a dominant team in the World.

     
  • Is the way this guy suspend himself in the air that give me joy, we shd not compare VO to nobody but CR7, a complete and tireless striker

     
  • Adeleke 2 months ago

    @Akp, Common stop dropping your tribal men’s name here, they no send you. Hope they speak ip soon.. Even your chukwueze knows it is Osigoooals day.

     
    • Sir I am not from that tribe you are linking me to….. please stop this thing you guys are doing here……It’s so irritating to say the least….. this Tribalism of a thing has killed Nigeria enough and football is the only place it has not killed 100 percent…..Why trying so hard to bring it to football?

       
    • MAJOR HILLS 2 months ago

      Let him drop what he wants to drop, if we celebrate all, there’s nothing etrong with that,

       
  • Tobore 2 months ago

    Adeleke,, the guy is free to do catch up since the goat has already left the barn. Everyone in the forum is looking at where tribalism will take him anyway. We are celebrating Osimhen for bringing good tidings to Nigerians.

     
  • Elijah Samson 2 months ago

    Napoli coach did one thing in the game and that was chages. When he removed the front 3 at the back of Osigoal, he brought in two wingers and a midfielder therby changing formation from 4231 to 433. And I noticed that 4231 formation does not that favour Osigoal. This is how how wonderful coach rhor should try and read game and change formation while the match is in progress. Osigoal will rule the world of football some day

     
    • Napoli started with 433 formation, and completed with 433 as well, stop giving force info.. You are just looking for ways to rubbish Rohr and nothing concern him here

       
    • Chris 2 months ago

      I had to watch the match again to see the performance of Aina, wrong positioning and the repeated loss of concentration by OUR OWN AINA gave Napoli the last chance to win, well-executed by who else? OUR OWN AIRSIMEN.

       
      • On a deflected shot? Positioning? Nawa o

         
      • @ Chris Aina was in no way at fault for the goal…..he marked osimhen well anytime osimhen drifted into his area and he had a decent 90min…….The goal came through a fortunate deflected clearance that went floating into the air and osimhen was quickest to react and he also had the awareness to attack the ball in the air before it came down into the crowded box 18…….There is nothing any defender in the world can do to stop osimhen at that point.
