Nigeria international Victor Osimhen on Sunday became highest scoring African in Serie A history after netting Napoli’s only goal in their 1-0 win over Fiorentina at the Diego Maradona stadium.
Osimhen saw one penalty saved before scoring another as the champions marked their Scudetto celebrations amid a carnival atmosphere.
The goal was the 24-year-old 23rd league of the season and his 47th in the league since his move in 2020.
Osimhen’s 47th goal in Serie A was also his first from the penalty spot.
The Napoli striker claimed a slice of history with his game-winning strike, surpassing Weah (46 goals) to become the highest-scoring African player in Italian top-flight history.
The Super Eagles forward had equalled Weah’s record for the highest African goalscorer in Serie A with his massive goal against Udinese on Thursday which helped Napoli to clinch their first Serie A title in over three decades.
Having ended a 33-year wait to win Serie A on Thursday, Luciano Spalletti’s men were greeted by a jubilant crowd at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
