Victor Osimhen, Super Eagles forward, made a significant impact as he came off the bench to secure the second goal in the Serie A match against Lecce last Saturday.
Coach Rudi Garcia did not include Osimhen in the starting lineup, but the Nigerian forward managed to score for the second consecutive game, showing his resilience after the Napoli TikTok incident that ridiculed him for a missed penalty against Bologna.
The 24-year-old striker found the net shortly after entering the game in the second half, replacing Giovanni Simeone. Osimhen executed a perfect header from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s accurately delivered cross at the back post.
Nevertheless, in a similar fashion to the previous game, Osimhen, since the incident that mocked him, left the penalty-taking duty to a teammate. Napoli was granted a penalty in the closing minutes of the match when Lecce midfielder Ramadani fouled substitute Gianluca Gaetano. Another substitute, Matteo Politano, successfully converted the penalty.
Looking ahead, the Partenopei are set to face Real Madrid next Tuesday in Matchday 2 of the Champions League.
