Osimhen Equals Weah’s Serie A Goal Record
Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has equaled the Serie A goal record of football icon and current Liberian president George Weah.
Osimhen matched Weah’s record after scoring in Napoli’s 2-0 win at Sampdoria in Sunday’s league clash.
The goal means Osimhen has become the second African player to score 10+ goals in three different Serie A seasons, after Weah with AC Milan (1995/96; 1996/97 and 1997/98).
Also, Osimhen is the first player to reach 10 goals in Serie A this season.
He broke the deadlock against Sampdoria in the 19th minute as he slotted home a cross from the left by Mario Rui past the keeper.
The win saw Napoli maintain top spot on 44 points, seven ahead of champions AC Milan.
