Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, celebrated his Serie A title and Capocannoniere award with his friends and family.

Victor Osimhen created history this weekend by becoming the first African to win the Capocannoniere (Serie A Top Scorer Award) after scoring another goal in Napoli’s 2-0 win over Sampdoria at Estadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Osimhen’s goal on Sunday was his 26th of the season, placing the Nigerian striker well ahead of other candidates for the title of Italy’s goal king. Lautaro Martnez finished second for Inter Milan with 21 goals.

It is worth noting that Osimhen is the first striker since 2009 to win both the top scorer award and the Scudetto, a feat accomplished by Zlatan Ibrahimovic with Inter 14 years ago, albeit with 25 goals.

Osimhen, 24, has now joined the exclusive list of Napoli legends as he is only the fourth Capocannoniere winner in the post-war period for the Naples-based club.

In 1987/88, Diego Maradona was named best scorer, but AC Milan won the title. Edinson Cavani did it in 2012/13, and Gonzalo Higuain did it in 2015-16, with Juventus winning the Scudetto.

Osimhen has already surpassed George Weah’s record of 47 goals in the Italian top division and surpassed Samuel Eto’o’s season goal total of 21.

At the weekend, Osimhen was undoubtedly in a happy mood with his partner and daughter, as well as with Nigeria Football Federation president, Ibrahim Gusau.

Osimhen’s record-breaking season is a testament to his hard work and dedication, according to many.

He’s gone a long way since his days at Charleroi and Lille, and he’s now one of Europe’s most dangerous strikers.

Despite hints that the Nigerian striker will most likely continue at Napoli for at least another season, several major European teams are eager to invest huge money to sign Osimhen this summer.

Many Nigerian fans would be relieved to see Osimhen carry the Super Eagles on his back, as he did for Napoli, with whom he helped break a 33-year title drought.
