French Ligue 1 side Lille Metropole could not hide their joy as striker Victor Osimhen scored his first senior national team goal for Nigeria.
Osimhen bravely took up the spot kick responsibility after Samuel Kalu was tripped in the box and converted with a lot of energy behind the ball and the Ligue 1 campaigners described it as “nicely done”.
The French club side on Twitter reacted to the latest feat achieved by the 21 year-old striker.

Osimhen joined Lille from Sporting Charleroi in the Belgian league for a fee believed to be in the region of 12 million Euros.
He has scored four goals in as many matches in the Ligue 1 and won the August player of the month after his breathtaking start to the season.
