Why Osimhen Couldn't Stop Scoring As He Scores Again In UEFA Europa League

Victor Osimhen can't stop scoring as he scored again for Napoli in a UEFA Europa league game against Legia Warsaw on Thursday night. It was his 9th goal for Napoli in all competitions this season.

Last season, Osimhen could only register 10 goals for Napoli because he was halted in his momentum by a shoulder injury he cupped up while on international assignment for Super Eagles of Nigeria. His testing positive for COVID-19 also ensured he was out of action midway through last season.

Osimhen's desire to make up for his partial absence last season must have informed one of the reasons why he can't stop scoring goals now that he's fully fit.

And it could be recalled that he apologised to Napoli fans recently for his absence last season and had promised to make up this season.

While speaking to 'Tutto Napoli', Osimhen had said it is important for him to start the new season well and scoring goals will give him more confidence to score more goals.

His goal against Legia Warsaw was his 9th in all competitions for Napoli this season and it confirms he scored in his first three matches in a single season in European competition.
