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.
