Nigeria international Victor Osimhen came off the bench to score the second goal in Napoli’s 2-0 victory over Lecce in Serie A on Saturday.
Osimhen was not named in the starting line-up, but he was introduced in the second half and scored within minutes of his arrival on the pitch. He headed home a perfectly floated cross from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia at the back post.
This is Osimhen’s second goal in two games since the incident where the official Napoli TikTok page mocked him for his penalty miss against Bologna. However, he has now left a penalty for a teammate in both games.

Napoli were awarded a penalty in the closing minutes of the game after Lecce midfielder Ramadani brought down substitute Gianluca Gaetano. Another substitute, Matteo Politano, scored the spot-kick.
Napoli will now face Real Madrid in their next game on Tuesday in the Champions League.
