Making an impact as a substitute, Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen netted the second goal for his club in their Serie A match versus Lecce on Saturday.
Entering the game as a reserve, Osimhen found the back of the net to help his side secure the victory over their opponent.
The Nigerian forward’s clutch goal-scoring contribution arrived after he was brought on by the manager with the intent of sparking the attack.
Osimhen was not named in the starting XI put forward by coach Rudi Garcia, but the Nigerian forward scored for the second game running after the incident where the official Napoli TikTok mocked him for his penalty miss against Bologna.
The 24-year-old scored minutes after coming on in the second half to replace Giovanni Simeone.
Osimhen headed the ball home from a perfectly floated cross from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia at the back post.
However, for the second game running, the Nigerian forward, since his mocked miss, left a penalty for his teammate.
Napoli was awarded a penalty in the closing minute of the game after Lecce midfielder Ramadani brought down substitute Gianluca Gaetano.
Another substitute, Matteo Politano, scored the spot-kick.
The Partenopei will face Real Madrid next Tuesday in Matchday 2 of the Champions League.
