Serie A: Victor Osimhen dedicates first Napoli goal to #ENDSARS protest

Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, scored his first goal in Serie A as Napoli defeated Atalanta 4-1 on Saturday. 

Osimhen dedicated the superb 43rd-minute finish to the EndSARS movement with a shirt bearing an β€œEnd Police Brutality in Nigeria” inscription.

Earlier, the player had tweeted in support of #EndSARS protesters in Nigeria.

Napoli paid French club Lille a club record fee of up to 80 million euros ($94.6 million) to bring Nigeria forward to southern Italy on a five-year deal.

All of Napoli’s goals came in the first half. 

Atalanta pulled one back after the breakthrough Lammer. 

Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli is hoping to get back on track after their aborted trip to Juventus before the international break.

They did not turn up for the game in Turin after two positive coronavirus cases.

As a result, they were handed a 3-0 defeat and docked a point, a huge setback for a side who won their first two-game this season.
