Osimhen scores twice as champions Napoli begin season on fine note

Victor Osimhen scored twice as Napoli began the defence of their Serie A title by coming from behind to win at newly-promoted Frosinone.

The Nigerian striker’s league-leading 26 goals last season helped Napoli to a first title since 1990, and he began the new campaign in similarly prolific fashion.

Abdou Harroui’s early penalty gave the hosts a shock lead but Matteo Politano levelled from the edge of the box.

Osimhen fired Napoli ahead before the break and steered in a second late on.
