Victor Osimhen scores two goals on Lille debut
Victor Osimhen had a delightful debut for Lille as he scored two goals in the match against Nantes in the French Ligue 1.
The Nigerian footballer had only joined Lille a few weeks ago from Sporting Chaleroi of Belgium for €12m and his two goals on his debut gave his new team the much needed win.
Lille started reaping from his move in the 19th minute of his debut. He also coverted a Celik through-ball with 10 minutes left to play. Asides becoming the second Nigerian to score on Ligue 1 debut after Austin Jay-Jay Okocha in 1998 for PSG, the youngster took a fitting first step in replacing Nicolas Pepe who joined Arsenal for £72 million.
