Nigerian international Victor Osimhen has become the second player with the most headed goals in Europe’s top five leagues (the English Premier league, Spanish Laliga Santander, Italian serie A, German Bundesliga and French Ligue 1) in 2022, after scoring a stunning header in Napoli’s remarkable 3-2 victory over Udinese Calcio football club on Saturday.
Victor Osimhen has been one of the best players in Europe since returning from injury last month and he has been firing from all cylinders for the club in all competitions.
The former LOSC Lille football club star was given another starting role by coach Luciano Spalletti, following his outstanding performance for the club in their last game and he was able to play a vital role in the team’s victory.
Goals from Victor Osimhen, Eljif Elmas and Piotr Zielinaki gave Napoli football club a convincing victory, despite the fact that Ilija Nestorovski and Lazar Samardzic scored for Udinese Calcio football club.
The goal against Udinese Calcio football club has now marked Victor Osimhen’s 9th goal of the season in the Italian Serie A, and he is currently the highest goal scorer in the League.
With Victor Osimhen’s goal against Udinese Calcio football club on Saturday evening, it means he has scored 8 headed goals for Napoli football club this year;
“Only Harry Kane (9) has scored more headed goals than Victor Osimhen (8) since the start of 2022 in the Big-5 European Leagues.”
