Nigerian international, Victor Osimhen scored the winning goal as Napoli defeated Braga 2-0 to qualify for the Champions League knockout stage on Tuesday.

Osimhen, who was in Morocco on Monday where he was crowned African Footballer of the Year, returned to score for Napoli.

In the 80th minute, Ricardo Horta blew a good opportunity to score. Without any hesitation, he fired in a shot from mid-range, but the ball crashed against the right post.

The goal was Osimhen’s first in the Champions League, and he was clearly excited at breaking the duck.

However, that was all he could muster, as he was taken off in the 69th minute. The game eventually ended 2-0 in Napoli’s favour, and it sealed their place in the rounds 18
