Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen made his competitive debut for Seria A side Napoli as he came from the bench to help them claim a 2-0 victory over Parma.

Osimhen gave Napoli the edge in the final third at the Stadio Ennio Tardini when he came on in the 61st minute, making lovely touches and one-twos with Insigne & some searing pace.

While on the pitch, he created four chances, had two shots, and a 100% pass accuracy (5). Dries Martens and Lorenzo Insigne got the goals for Napoli.

Osimhen joined Napoli on a five-year deal in July after an impressive debut season in Ligue 1 with Lille, where he scored 18 goals in 36 appearances.

The Nigerian U17 World Cup winner in 2015 had scored double hat-tricks for Napoli in two pre-season friendly games.
