A few days after leading Il Pertenopei to a crushing victory over Bassa Anaunia, the Super Eagles striker was once again the star of the show at the Stadio Comunale in Dimaro
Nigerian international forward Victor Osimhen scored the match’s only goal as Napoli secured a narrow victory over Pro Vercelli at the Stadio Comunale on Saturday afternoon.
In what is Napoli’s second and last friendly match in Dimaro, Osimhen made the difference popping up midway through the first half to send home a fine header after a Mario Rui corner bubbled about in the box.
That winning strike is Osimhen’s fifth strike in two games after he found the back of the net four times in 37 minutes when Luciano Spalletti’s men thrashed Bassa Anaunia earlier in the week.
Osimhen’s goals are what everyone associated with Napoli is hoping for next season as the club target titles in the Italian Serie A, the Italian Cup, and the UEFA Europa League.
Napoli next travel to the Allianz Arena in Munich to take on Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich as they step up their preparations ahead of the 2021-22 season.
The Azzurri face newly-promoted Venezia in the opening weekend of Serie A on August 22, a tie which could see Osimhen go against international teammate Tyronne Ebuehi.
