Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen has reacted to Napoli’s hard fought victory over Torino in Sunday’s Serie A fixture.
Osimhen’s crucial header in the 80th minute earned Luciano Spalletti side’s eight consecutive win in the league.
The red-hot striker has now scored five goals in seven games played in the Italian top flight and eight goals in nine outings in all competitions.
Reacting after the win Osimhen wrote on Twitter:”Unbelievable atmosphere, thank you for your support, we keep going like this @sscnapoli.”
Sunday’s win saw Napoli usurp AC Milan to go top in the league table.
Napoli would have scored in the 27th minute, after they were awarded a penalty, but Lorenzo Insigne saw his effort saved.
It was Insigne’s third miss out of five attempted penalties this season.
In the 56th minute Napoli had the ball in the net with a smart free kick routine, as Mario Rui whipprd the ball across the six-yard box for Di Lorenzo’s header, but the goal was chalked off after a very long VAR check.
