Victor Osimhen helped Napoli to be crowned Italian Serie A champions. The title had been eluding the Campania side for 33 years. He scored the equalizer against Udinese in the closing match of the 33rd day (1-1). This goal, Victor's 22nd of the season, consecrates the title of the Partenopei. It allows the Nigerian, in addition to the symbolic goal decisive for the title, to break 2 records. It is first of all that of the best African striker. That, on a season of Serie A.
The record was previously held by Samuel Eto'o under the colors of Internazionale FC. He scored 21 goals in the 2010-2011 season. The second record broken by Osimhen is that he joins George Weah in the table. He becomes the joint top African scorer in the calcio, with 46 goals scored. Osimhen enters the history books three times. With this scudetto, and his two records. A historic season for the former Lille player who has definitely taken a new dimension!
Victor Osimhen has scored more Serie A goals this season than any African player has ever managed in an Italian top-flight campaign.
