Why I Didn’t Take Penalty Against Frankfurt – Osimhen
Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has opened up on why he didn’t take the penalty during his team’s win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Recall that Osimhen was on a hattrick before the penalty was awarded to his team.
Osimhen scored two goals as Napoli defeated Frankfurt 3-0 to qualify for a first-ever Champions League quarter-final place 5-0 on aggregate.
He scored in two minutes into first-half stoppage time and netted his second goal in the 53rd minute, Complete Sports reports.
Piotr Zielinski scored Napoli’s third from the penalty spot in the 64th minute.
Osimhen would have taken the penalty to bag a hat-trick but instead handed the ball over to Zielinski.
In a video posted on BT Sport’s YouTube channel, Osimhen said he was not bothered about who scored as long as the club achieved success.
“The penalty Zieliniski asked me if he could take it, of course, I’m a team player it doesn’t matter who scores as long as the team achieves success. I know my goals will come with or without penalty,” Osimhen said.
According to Complete Sports, the player also expressed delight following Napoli’s historic quarter-final qualification, saying, “It feels good, it feels amazing, it feels good to make history with this win. We want to keep on going like this until the next round, we are ready for it,” he added.
Osimhen has scored four goals in five Champions League matches this term.
The 24-year-old is the first player to score for Napoli in both legs of a Champions League knockout tie.
