Nigerian super eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, scores a hattrick in his debut match for the Italian Serie A side, Napoli to whip a fourth division side, Castel di Sangro 10-nil on Friday, August 28, 2020.

Osimhen’s first goal came just after 59 seconds after picking up a long pass from just outside the area. He raced into the penalty box before finishing at the far post. 

Three minutes later, he netted another goal, racing on to another long pass from the wings before smashing at the far post. 

He scored his third shortly after beating a defender just inside the area before rounding up the goalkeeper. 

He also had two assists in the game, once with a header and the other with a square play from the right.

Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso was impressed with the young striker, but called for caution over the expectations of the club’s record signing. 

I’m satisfied with Victor, but let’s let him work in peace,” Gattuso said after the game according to the club’s official website. 

“Osimhen is integrating well, he has quality, means, he knows what he can do and if he continues to commit himself he can have a great impact on the pitch.”

Osimhen joined Napoli who splashed a record transfer fee of €71m to get the young Nigerian from Lille.
