Ligue 1: Osimhen on Target as Lille Defeat Angers
Nigerian youngster Victor Osimhen scored his fifth Ligue 1 goal of the season as Lille claimed a 2-1 win over Angers on Friday.
Osimhen scored Lille’s opening goal as they secured a 2-1 victory; thus making it three wins in five matches.
Luiz Araujo’s fine individual strike in the 53rd minute doubled the lead for last season’s runners-up, who held on to take their third victory of the new campaign despite a late goal from Angers forward Stephane Bahoken.
Osimhen on Tuesday bagged his first international goal for Nigeria in a friendly against Ukraine before returning to continue in the same light for his French club.
Lille are now third in the fledgling table, level on points with leaders Paris Saint-Germain and second-placed Rennes.
