Victor Osimhen scored a brace for Napoli in the 4-0 thrashing of Torino on Sunday.
Osimhen, 24, scored two great headers in either halves of the match as Napoli inch closer to the Serie A title.
The brace takes his tally to 21 goals for the season; He breaks Simy Nwankwo’s record (20) for the most goals scored by a Nigerian in a single Serie A season.
He also equalled the record of most goal by African player (21) set by former Cameroon international Samuel Eto’o.
However, Erling Haaland (28) is the only player in Europe’s Top 5 Leagues with more League goals than the Nigerian this season.
Meanwhile Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Tanguy Ndombele are the other scorers for the Partenopei in the game against Torino on Sunday.
