Victor Osimhen starred for Napoli, as he helped the Italian side to a draw against Leicester in their Europa League group stage opener on Thursday.
The Nigerian striker scored twice as Napoli came from behind to earn a 2–2 draw at the King Power Stadium.
Leicester had scored the opening goal in the 9th minute through Ayoze Perez and then doubled their advantage in the 64th minute – with Kelechi Iheanacho providing the assist for Harvey Barnes’ goal.
