Victor Osimhen, Super Eagles forward, has won the Serie A goal of the month award for January.
The winner was announced on the league’s Twitter page on Thursday.
Victor Osimhen opened the scoring after he volleyed up an outrageous piece of juggling in the area with a fantastic volley.
The goal came in the 17th minute and was the opening finish of the game.
Osimhen was at the end of a tidy cross-in from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The Nigerian cushioned the ball on his chest and redirected it with the thigh before smashing a shot into the roof of the net beyond Rui Patricio.
The Partenopei went on to win the game 2-1 and maintain their 13-point lead at the top.
It was victor’s 14th league goal of the season, adding to his comfort at the summit of Serie A’s goal scorers.
The award comes a few days after Osimhen was nominated for the best player award in January.
He was listed for the monthly prize alongside Ademola Lookman, Lautaro Martinez, Paulo Dybala, and Luis Alberto.
Osimhen has been in blistering form, scoring 15 goals in 20 appearances across all competition while helping Napoli stay 13-point clear at the top of the Serie A.
