Osimen: Firing From All Cylinders


There is no stopping in-form Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimen, as he keeps banging the goals for his Italian Seria A club, Napoli. The pacy striker’s last goal, seventh in five appearances for the club, wasn’t enough to prevent his club from suffering a defeat in the hands of Spartak Moscow on a night his compatriot, Spartak Moscow’s Victor Moses, took the victory shine.


Napoli went into the match as tops on pundits’ table following its impressive from-the-brink 2-2 outing against Leicester in London. However, the player began the night from the bench. However, he came on in the second half for Andera Petagna. But it was Spartak that recorded an impact when a 55-minute strike from Quincy Promes evened scores.


The reds were on hand to prove how deadly they could be in front of goal when Mikhail Ignatov scored another goal in the 80th minute. As would be expected, the goal sent the mainly Italian crowd at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium into death silence.


Yet, it was the reds that recorded another score at the 90th minute with Promes hitting a second goal. It came after team mate, Maximiliano Caufriez, got the red card.


A last minute rally by the Italian club yielded result as Osimen tapped home a low cross from Giovanni Di Lorenzo at the 94th minute.
