Former Real Madrid striker, Cassano praises Osimhen for scoring a goal like Drogba and Ronaldo

It is normal for fans and ex-footballers to praise and criticize active footballers based on their performances. Victor Osimhen has been in spectacular form this season and he is currently getting a good deal of applause in the football world.

Former Real Madrid striker, Cassano, thinks that one of Osimhen's recent goals deserves much more praises than it got because it similar to one of Ronaldo's goals. Ronaldo is a good jumper and when he uses that ability to scores, many people praise him.

Osimhen jumped as high as 2.52 m above ground level to score against Torino, and Cassano said, “The goal was incredible. When Cristiano Ronaldo did it, everyone praised him and put in how many meters and centimeters he jumped.”

Cassano didn't only compare the Super Eagle's striker with Ronaldo, he also compared him with Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba. He said, “That goal reminded me of Drogba, it was the sensational goal, he jumped over the crossbar and scored a crazy goal.”

Osimhen will be happy with the comparison because Drogba and Ronaldo are two people that he looked up to, when he was younger. He even met Ronaldo last season when Napoli faced Juventus.
