Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has continued his rich run of form as he netted a goal for his club on Thursday in the Europa League clash with Legia Warsaw.

The in-form Osimhen started the game from the bench, and still managed to get on the mark when he was introduced.

The Nigeria international replaced Spanish midfielder Fabian Ruiz in the 57th minute and he changed the game completely.

He was involved in Lorenzo Insigne’s opening goal in the 76th minute, before netting the second goal in the 80th minute.

His second goal of the night was disallowed by the referee, but Matteo Politano made sure Napoli secured an emphatic win by netting the third late in the game.

Osimhen has now scored 4 goals in 3 Europa League games and 5 in 7 Serie A games for Napoli this season.
