Napoli’s talisman, Victor Osimhen has equaled George Weah’s record for the highest African goalscorer in Serie A with 46 goals.

The Nigerian equaled the Ballon d’Or winner’s record with his massive goal against Udinese on Thursday which helped Napoli to clinch their first Serie A title in over three decades.

Osimhen netted a title-sealing equalizer for Napoli in the 52nd minute, causing the Napolitan fans to bounce in the Friuli.
