Serie A: Osimhen Shatters Record, Wins Top Scorer Award

Serie A: Osimhen Shatters Record, Wins Top Scorer Award

Napoli forward Victor Osimhen makes history as the first African player to win Capocannoniere.

The Nigeria international is the first to combine that with the Scudetto since 2009.

Napoli won the title with five rounds to spare and now Osimhen can also enjoy his Capocannoniere status, as Lautaro Martinez fired blanks for Inter Milan on Saturday and cannot go beyond his 21 goals.

Former Sweden international, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the last player to combine both the Scudetto and the top scorer award for Inter Milan in 2008/09.

The striker is the fourth Capocannoniere for Napoli in the post-war period after Diego Maradona in 1987-88 (when Milan won the title), Edinson Cavani in 2012-13 and Gonzalo Higuain in 2015-16, both with Juventus taking the Scudetto.

Osimhen has already beaten George Weah’s record of 47 goals in the Italian top flight.

      Inter has played their last league game yesterday and Martinez did not score. Osimhen has won even if he misses today’s game with 4 goal difference.

      Which league again? The league has ended na, Inter has played the last match and Oshimen is playing Napoli last for the season, so he has worn the award already
