Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has opened his goal account for new club SSC Napoli with a hatrick in a 11-0 thrashing of L’Aquila.

The former Lille Striker could not have hoped for a better start to life in Italy as he also provided an assist in the emphatic pre-season friendly victory.

Osimhen cost the Italian Serie A club more than 80 million Euros from Ligue 1 club Lille and he did not waste time before he began to justify his huge price tag when he got off the mark after just two minutes against the Serie D club.

The Super Eagles striker, sporting jersey No 9, made it 2-0 a minute later, before he completed his treble in the eighth minute.

He also provided an assist in the 28th minute for Napoli to lead 8-0.

The goals and the big win can only be good for the confidence of the Napoli new signing.

Napoli will be hoping this debut is a sign of more to come from the Nigerian.
