Victor Osimhen hugged the headline in Europe once again on Wednesday night with another sumptuous performance for Napoli.
The striker scored two goals as Napoli made light work of the German, winning 3-0 in Champions League round of 16 second leg in Napless.
The 24-year-old produced astonishing leap to steer in the Napoli opener, earning praise and comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo and Michael Jordan on social media.
The Nigeria international took flight when Matteo Politano swept in the cross from the right, hanging in the air for what felt like an eternity to nod into the top corner.
Henry, peaking in CBS studio, credited the striker for netting such a beautiful goal.
If you can’t read momentum and you jumped, then it’s going to be difficult to score that kind of goal.
“They are doing what they had to do, Politano had the ball and the defender was waiting for him to go with the left, but he has his striker waiting in the box and he crossed the ball to him,
“They are so direct sometimes, and it is why they have Osimhen and he scored.” Henry who won the competition at Barcelona said.
Osimhen scored again in the second half to make it four goals in the competition, before leaving the field in the second half.
