Victor Osimhen wins goal of the month

The official Serie A Twitter handle posted that Oismhen's goal has been voted as the best goal scored in the Italian top flight last month.

Osimhen's memorable goal came in the 17th minute when he was found in the box by teammate Kvicha Kvaratskheila's good cross.

The Nigerian took full advantage of the delivery, controlling the ball first with his chest, setting it down with his knee after which he unleashed a fierce shot past the helpless Roma goalkeeper to give his team the lead.

That goal was Osimhen's fifth in January capping off a superb month in which he has been nominated for player of the month as well.

The 24-year-old Nigerian is currently enjoying his best ever season and has been a key part for Napoli who sit top of Serie A 13 points clear of the chasing pack.
