Victor Osimhen scored on Thursday night against Udinese his 22nd goal of the season in Serie A. A goal that offers him a record held by Samuel Eto’o and to equal George Weah.

With 22 goals, Victor Osimhen became the best African striker of Serie A in a season. He exceeds by one goal Samuel Eto’o who managed to score 21 goals in the 2010-2011 season with Inter Milan. The goal against Udinese also brings the Nigerian forward closer to the legend George Weah. The latter holds the record as the top African scorer in Serie A with 46 goals with AC Milan between 1995 and 2000. The former Lille player has the same number of goals and should be able to break this record by the end of the season. We must remember that Napoli still has 5 games to play in the championship.
