Victor Osimhen, a striker for Napoli, was instrumental in helping his team win the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years. In Thursday’s 1-1 draw between Napoli and Udinese, the Nigerian international netted the equalizer, securing the championship for his team.
In the summer of 2020, the 22-year-old striker transferred from the French team Lille to Napoli, where he has been a vital member of the squad all season. Osimhen has been a consistent threat in front of goal with his speed, strength, and precision finishing ability. His assistance was crucial in helping Napoli win the Serie A championship.
Napoli got off to a fast start and controlled possession against Udinese on Thursday. However, Rodrigo De Paul’s goal for Udinese gave them the lead in the 12th minute.
Osimhen’s equalizer in the 23rd minute gave Napoli the breakthrough they required as they continued to press forward. The Nigerian striker displayed excellent poise as he advanced the ball past the Udinese goalie and placed it into an open goal.
Both teams had opportunities to score the rest of the time, but neither was successful. Napoli won the Scudetto championship with a 1-1 draw, giving them a four-point advantage over second-place Juventus.
Osimhen acknowledged his happiness at helping Napoli win the championship in a post-game interview. “I’m thrilled to have contributed to my team’s Scudetto victory. I am pleased with my teammates and the work we have accomplished this season, and it is a great feeling,” he remarked.
Luciano Spalletti, the manager of Napoli, lauded Osimhen for his contribution to the team’s accomplishments. Victor has been a key player for us throughout the season, and he was instrumental in our team’s championship victory. “I am thrilled for him and the team. His goal tonight was crucial,” Spalletti added.
