Osimhen Leads Napoli To Scudetto Title After 33 Years

Victor Osimhen made history on Thursday night powering Napoli to win a Serie A title after 33 years.

The Nigerian forward scored the decisive goal in the second half as Napoli came back from trailing to Sandi Lovric’s opener at half-time.

Osimhen’s title-deciding strike against Udinese was his 22nd goal in 28 league appearances and rightly caused bedlam among the massed ranks of away fans who took over Udine.

The Nigerian skipper had the best season of his career as a key player to Napoli’s historic,  becoming one of the most devastating centre forwards in European football, clattering in goals left and right.

Recall injury slowed down the 24-year-old striker’s scoring rate, but after returning from a thigh injury in mid-October and the recent round of African Cup of Nations qualifiers last month, he averaged a goal a game.

Over that period, Osimhen scored 23 times in 23 matches in all competitions, propelling Napoli to the brink of a historic Scudetto and becoming a bona fide fan idol even before he scored the goal that secured the title on Thursday.

Napoli’s Thursday win saw an end to a 33-year title drought, thanks to Osimhen’s title-winning strike which powered the team to glory, one that was last won in 1990.

Napoli are leading second-placed Lazio with 16 points, leaving them with a month-long parade between now and the end of the season which will allow their long-suffering supporters to fully unload more than a generation of frustration.
