That’s 4 goals in 3 games for Victor Osimhen at Lille. With Odion Ighalo retiring from international football, Nigeria couldn’t have asked for a better successor.

@ZachLowy 
I hope he scores 20+ goals at least that should get him a huge move to a top 8 team in England or Spain
@Iamdakpore
Anybody seeing Osimhen doing wonders for Lille, He’s scored twice today taking his tally to 4 goals in 3 games I hope Super Eagles coach will give this lad more playing time now that Ighalo has retired from national duty.
