Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen, has scored his 100th club goal as Napoli continued a perfect start to their Serie A title defence with yesterday’s 2-0 win over 10-man Sassuolo.
Osimhen netted his third goal of the season from the penalty spot 15 minutes into Napoli’s first home match since lifting the league title in the presence of their fans for the third time back in June.
Captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo made sure Napoli would make it six points from six in the 64th minute, not long after Maxime Lopez was sent off and Giacomo Raspadori, who had hit the post seconds after kick-off, missed a penalty.
Meanwhile, the International football star received the Paolo Rossi award for finishing top scorer in Serie A last season, an award named after Italy international Rossi.
The striker is also currently the highest scoring African in the Italian top flight after beating the old record set by former Cameroon hitman Samuel Eto’o.
