In addition, the player born in 1998 also has 4 more goals in the Champions League. His contributions helped Napoli take the lead in Serie A and reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The Nigerian player is considered a comprehensive striker, he has the ability to score diverse goals, has good speed and ability to make walls.
During the gathering with the Nigerian team, this player got injured. Osimhen complained of discomfort in the left adductor muscle and initial examination revealed damage. The extent of the injury and recovery time are still unclear.
