Victor Osimhen Increases Goal Tally With Strike For Charleroi In Win Over Lokeren


Nigeria international striker Victor Osimhen played the role of super substitute as he was on target for his loan side Charleroi to hand them a 4-2 win away to Lokeren in the Belgium top flight.


Osimhen was introduced in the 70th minute, no thanks to his late arrival from international duty with Nigeria and the 19 year old didn’t disappoint as put the game beyond the reach of Lokeren when he put his team 3-1 up.

Prior to today’s game he has found the back of the net against Waasland-Beveren, Cercle Brugge, Gent and Zulte-Waregem where he scored his only brace of the season so far.

Already his fine form has earned him a recall to the senior national team of Nigeria and he started in the 0-0 friendly draw against Uganda in Asaba on Tuesday. His first game at international level for Nigeria in over two years.

Overall he has seven goals this season from 11 games this season in all competitions, a remarkable return for the forward who failed to score a single goal at his parent club Wolfsburg in 18 months.
