Osimhen net first league goal for Napoli, holds up shirt in support of #EndSARS campaign


After scoring his first league goal for Napoli, Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen holds up a shirt in support of the campaign against Police Brutality, #EndSARS in Nigeria.

#EndSARS is a movement calling for banning of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a controversial division known for police oppression.

Osimhen got on the score sheet with two minutes left in the first half to make it 4-0 for Napoli.

The former Lille striker chested down David Ospina’s long ball upfield, turned and drilled low into the bottom corner for his first in three league games.

Hirving Lozano opened scoring for Napoli in the 23rd minute before doubling his side’s lead on 27 minutes.

And on the half hour mark, Matteo Politano added the third goal while Sam Lammers pulled a goal back for Atalanta in the 69th minute.

Napoli are third on eight points while Atalanta remain second on nine points in the league table.

Recall that before the Atalanta clash, the Napoli players were asked to stay at their Castel Volturno training ground after the club was prevented from traveling to honour their matchday-3 Serie A game against Juventus by the local health authority following a surge in Covid-19 cases across Italian sports teams.
