Osimhen’s Performance For Nigeria Against Lesotho Celebrated By His Club

Ligue 1 outfit, Lille LOSC, celebrated the performance of their top scorer as he put up another impressive performance for Nigeria during the international break.

The 20-year-old scored a brace and assisted two more goals as the Super Eagles grabbed a convincing 4-2 win in their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying Group L match against Lesotho in Maseru on Sunday.

Osimhen scored the third and fourth goals for his country late in the game, after providing the final passes for both Alex Iwobi and Samuel Chukwueze's goals.

As expected, the French club kept tabs on their star man and what they saw was so pleasing that they had to make a post on Twitter celebrating the youngster.

The brace on Sunday capped off a fine international break for the former Wolfsburg man who was also on target in the Super Eagles 2-1 home win against neighbours, Benin Republic, last week Wednesday.

Osimhen, who seemed to injure himself moments before he scored Nigeria's fourth goal, will now return to his club where he would be checked.

Even if he is passed fit, the former Golden Eaglets star who has now scored four goals in eight appearances for Nigeria will miss his team's clash against PSG this weekend for accumulated yellow cards.
