Victor Osimhen is delighted to make history with Napoli after scoring a brace in Sunday’s 3-0 win against Spezia.
The Nigeria international netted twice in the second half to continue his impressive scoring spree for the Partenopei.
The 24-year-old increased his goal haul to 16 from 17 league outings this season.
Osimhen is now the fourth Napoli player to score 16 goals in the first 21 Serie A games of the season following in the footsteps of Luis Vinicio in 1955-56, Edinson Cavani in 2012-13, and Gonzalo Higuain in 2015-16.
“We needed the points to keep the momentum going. I’m happy with the win and of course, to be in the history books of Napoli is a great privilege for me, so I am very happy about this”, the forward told Sky Sports Italia.
Napoli is on course to win the first Scudetto in 33 years and enjoy a 13-point lead at the top of the standings.
