Serie A Salutes Osimhen On Becoming Nigeria’s All Time Highest Goal Scorer In Italian Topflight

Serie A has congratulated Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen for becoming Nigeria’s highest goal scorer in the Italian topflight.

Osimhen bagged his 32nd Serie A when he drew Napoli level in their 2-1 win at Atalanta on Saturday.

He went on to provide the assist for Napoli’s second goal in the game, which also saw Ademola Lookman get on the score sheet for his sixth of this term.

And reacting to Osimhen’s recent feat, organizer of the Italian topflight wrote on their Twitter handle:”Congratulations on becoming the top Nigerian goalscorer in #SerieA💎 history @victorosimhen9 👏.”

Saturday’s win against Atalanta saw Napoli take their points tally to 35 and six points ahead of champions AC Milan.

    This is so SWEET!

    Am sure GENERAL ROAH will be so PROUD of YOU (OSIMHEN) for this FEAT because it was UNDER HIM YOU made your SENIOR DEBUTE for the SUPER EAGLES..

    Osimhen responds to being responsible for the penalty, by grabbing the equalizer and providing the assist for the winner. He’s on a hot streak. Just keeps scoring.
    Also on a hot streak is Lookman. Clinical penalty, right into the top corner. Even if the Napoli goalie had gone in the right direction, he would have been nowhere near the ball.
