Victor Osimhen on fire, scores brace for Napoli in big win

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Super Eagles attacker Victor Osimhen was on fire for Napoli after scoring twice in their 4-0 away win over Sampdoria at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

The 22-year-old forward has now scored five goals in his last three appearances for The Parthenopeans in all competitions.

Osimhen opened the scoring for the Blues in the 10th minute after tapping into the net from close range after receiving a delivery from Lorenzo Insigne from the left flank.

This came moments after he squandered a one-on-one chance with Emil Audero earlier in the encounter.

The former Lille forward completed his brace in the 50th minute with Hirving Lozano claiming the assist this time around. He sent the ball into the 18-yard box and it found the Nigerian who simply converted the opportunity.
