Nigerian striker Osimhen named in Lille squad for Nantes tie

Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen has been included in Lille's 18-man squad for their French Ligue 1 opener against Nantes on Sunday.

The Super Eagles player joined Lille joined Lille last week on a five-year contract from Belgian club, Sporting Charleroi.

Whether Head coach Christophe Galtier will hand Osimhen a starting role in Sunday's game remains to be seen.

The 20 -year-old will look to start his career with Lille on a resounding note following an impressive spell with Charleroi last season where he scored 20 goals in 38 league appearances.

Lille finished in second position behind Paris Saint-Germain in the league last season.
