0 32

Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen’s talismanic volley against Roma in the second leg of the Derby de Sole has been voted as Serie A Goal of the Month of January.

The Super Eagle scored the goal (described as many as a Goal of the Season and Puskas contender) off Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s beautiful cross.

Many have hailed him for his composure, and great technique following his classy opener in the I Partenopei’s 2-1 triumph over Jose Mourinho’s Roma on Sunday.

His 17-minute wonder striker had Napoli fans bouncing in Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Even the opponent coach, Mourinho said: “He [Victor Osimhen] is a good player. I clapped for his goal from my seat.”

Although Stephan El Shaarawy restored parity for Roma with 15 minutes left, Giovanni Simeone snatched a late winner to ensure the table toppers win the Derby de Sole and keep their historic scudetto dream alive.
