Osimhen scores again as Lille quench Angers

Victor Osimhen has continued from where he left off before the international break, as he scored Lille's opener in a Ligue 1 tie on Friday.

Lille beat Angers 2-1 to make it three wins in five matches.

Osimhen's goal, his fifth in Lille's 5th Ligue 1 match, came in the 39th minute.

The 20-year-old forward was the quickest to react as the Angers goalkeeper spilled a fierce drive from Jonathan Bamba, leaving the Nigeria international to bundle home the loose ball.

Lille got their second goal through Luiz Araujo's 53rd minute effort as thousands of home fans were sent into celebrations.

Stephane Bahoken pulled one back for Angers three minutes from time as he fired past goalkeeper Mike Maignan into the roof of the net.

Osimhen on Tuesday bagged his first international goal for Nigeria in a friendly against Ukraine.
