Samuel Chukwueze and Victor Osimhen both played and won the 2015 FIFA U-17 world cup together
The Napoli attacker has scored a sizable number of goals for Napoli and is currently attracting media notice for his remarkable performance so far for the Parthenopeans.
The Nigerian has scored 19 goals in 21 domestic league games so far this season, bringing his season total to more than 100 goals in 197 games, as opposed to Lionel Messi’s 210 games and Cristiano Ronaldo’s 301 games before hitting the 100-goal mark.
This has led to admiration for the 24-year-old’s record from his Chukwueze, who is also having a stellar season for Villarreal in the Spanish La League.
A post by 433, which was captioned “@victorosimhen9 only needed 197 games to score 100 goals, faster than Lionel Messi (210) and Cristiano Ronaldo (301) 🇳🇬👑” caught the attention of the Yellow submarine forward.

It should be emphasized that both players are recognized as close friends, having advanced to the Super Eagles squad together at a young age and participating in and winning the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup together.
Chukwueze and Osimhen are now making an impression for their clubs, and given their ages, they still have the opportunity to shatter more records for both their individual teams and themselves.
