    In the 79th minute Konate was guarding him. And what did Osimhen do? Like always he tried a long range shot which turned the ball over when he saw the defense coming. 

    Going against a premier league team would’ve been a good trial to see if he can play in the premier league. But Osimhen got shut down this game. The whole team had 2 shots on target out of 10. Osimhen is at his best when he is not injured, but the amount of fouls he was getting it looked like he would’ve been out.
