Friendly: Osimhen scores second Napoli hattrick

Friendly: Osimhen scores second Napoli hattrick

Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen continues to impress for SSC Napoli with another hattrick performance in preseason. 

Osimhen netted in the 14th minute before he completed his hattrick with a four-second half minute brace in their 4-0 win over Teramo on Friday. 

It was the second hattrick in as many games for the 21-year-old since he completed his record €80m move to Naples. 

Osimhen had  given Napoli fans a taste of what to expect from him in their 11-0 win over L’Aquila in a friendly on August 28. 

He scored a remarkable 8-minute hattrick in what was his first match in Napoli colours as they hammered their opponents. 

The highly-rated forward opened the scoring with a quick double in the opening three minutes before he completed his hattrick five minutes later with some style.  

The Super Eagles star is a new face in the Serie A side outfit who paid €50m to Ligue 1 side, Lille with some performance-related add-ons which could see the deal rise to €80m, making the 2015 U17 FIFA World Cup winner Nigeria’s most expensive player ever.

Osimhen joined Lille last summer from Belgian side Charleroi but after a productive first season in France during which he scored 18 goals in all competitions – despite the league ending after 28 games – a big-money move came calling.

The new number 9 in Naples has now scored six goals in just two matches for Napoli.
