Osimhen Surpasses Eto’o and Equals Weah’s Record

Victor Osimhen’s goalscoring accomplishments to help Napoli to a league title in 33 years have also set him alongside some of Africa’s greatest players in Italian top-flight history.

The 24-year-old registered his name into history books as his 22nd goal of the season wins his club its first title in 33 years.

He has also made history as his 22 goals have surpassed the 21 goals Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto’o scored for Inter Milan in the 2010-21 season, making him the African player with the most goals scored in a SERIE A season.

Osimhen went further in cementing his legacy as one of the African finest players in Italian top-flight history, by equaling former Liberia and AC Milan striker George Weah’s 46-goal record set in the year 2000 for the highest number of goals scored by an African player in the Italian top-flight.
