Victor Osimhen Lille 2019-20
The 20-year-old scored a goal in Tuesday’s win over AS Monaco, continuing his rich vein of form for the Great Danes this season

Victor Osimhen heightened his significance to Christophe Galtier’s team after getting a goal in Lille’s 3-0 French League Cup victory over Monaco.

With just 19 minutes of action inside Stade Louis II, the Nigeria international gave his side the lead after being assisted by Jonathan Ikone.

Loic Remy’s brace ensured that the Great Danes zoomed into the competition’s Round of 16 which is billed for January.

It was the Nigerian’s 12th goal of the season since his club-record move to France as Nicolas Pepe’s replacement.

Having scaled the Red and Whites’ hurdle, Galtier and his men now shift their focus to Sunday’s match against Raon l'Etape.
