Osimhen breaks 20-year Ligue 1 record

Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has broken a 20-year French Ligue 1 record after he scored in Lille’s 2-2 draw against Nimes on Sunday.

Osimhen's 79th-minute strike ensured he has scored in five consecutive home games.

According to Opta Jean, that was the first time a player achieved the feat since 1999.

“Victor Osimhen has become the first player to score in each of his first five home games in Ligue 1 since Alex (Dias) with St Etienne in 1999. Impressive,” Opta Jean tweeted.

Brazilian Alex, 47, played for St Etienne between 1999 and 2001, scoring 28 goals in 54 appearances.

He moved to PSG in 2001, spending a year, before returning to St Etienne, where he played for another one season.

Osimhen arrived at the club in the summer and has scored eight goals in 11 appearances for all competition.
