Victor Osimhen has got off to a flying start in the French Ligue 1 when he scored twice on his debut for Lille to beat Nantes 2-1 on the opening day of the new season.
Osimhen, who cost Lille 14 million Euros when he moved from Belgian club Sporting Charleroi, opened scoring for the home team in the 19th minute.
He controlled a long ball from his team’s own half of the pitch before he raced ahead to fire home.
The striker then grabbed the match winner in the 80th minute after Nantes had drawn level through an own goal early in the second half.
He powered into the roof of the net from inside the six-yard box to give Lille the full points as the fans sang out his name across the stadium.
Last season, he took Belgium by storm with his 20 goals in all competitions for Charleroi on loan from Bundesliga club Wolfsburg.
