Victor Osimhen Has Now Broken Ronaldo’s Goals Record In..

Victor Osimhen, who scored an incredible goal for Napoli against Empoli on Saturday, now holds the record set by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Osimhen appears well-positioned to be recognized at FIFA’s ‘The Best’ event in a years time because of his phenomenal season so far.

The Napoli hotshot has been very consistent with aggression. He continued his unstoppable scoring streak for Napoli against Empoli this weekend.

This season, the 24-year-old scored 21 goals in 25 games across all competitions, including 19 goals in 20 games in the Italian top flight.

He has now scored in seven consecutive matches across all competitions and eight consecutive Serie A matches, equaling Cristiano Ronaldo’s record in the league. Saturday’s goal came in the 28th minute.

2023™ Is Full Of Fun And Excitement On FIFA’s Calendar

Osimhen has scored 10 goals in his last 11 games since January 8th, while CR7 set a record in February 2020 when he became the first player to score in eight consecutive Serie A games, scoring 11 goals during that stretch.

Osimhen holds the record for most Serie A goals scored by African players, but that record is likely to fall in the coming weeks. Osimhen is followed by Liberia president George Weah, the only African player to win the Ballon d’Or.

Osimhen has already scored 43 goals in 71 league games since signing for the Partenopei from Napoli for a reported $96 million in 2020. Weah has scored 46 goals in 114 Serie A games for AC Milan.

Napoli increased their lead to a remarkable 18 points as Internazionale lost at Bologna, bringing their first title in three decades ever closer.
