Osimhen On Fire In Lille Debut, Brace Secures Win Over NantesRelated: Rohr Details Plans To Testing New Players And Making Super Eagles Even Better Next Year
After Nantes gave the ball away in Lille’s half of the field, Osimhen collected a lofted pass with perfect chest control, pushed the ball forward with a fine touch, surged past a defender with a burst of speed and scored from close range with great composure.
Osimhen who joined the Great Danes on a long-term deal to replace Nicolas Pepe who switched to Arsenal for £72 million, took a fitting first step toward replacing the new Gunner, scoring after just 19 minutes on the field.
"When I have opportunities, I don't want to miss them," said the Super Eagle's star. "I'm not yet 100 per cent but I'm training hard and I know that with time I'll be in top shape physically."
