Red-hot Oshimen Makes Ligue 1 Team Of The Week

In-form Lille striker Victor Osimhen earned a place in Ligue 1’s Team of the week after beginning the week with a goal against Marseille on Sunday.  

The Squad of the week was released on Twitter by French league authorities on Wednesday.

Oshimen grabbed his 13th league goal of the season in his side’s 2-1 loss to Marseille five days ago.

The  €13m signing from Sporting Charleroi has easily adapted to life in France and has recorded 17 goals in all competitions since his debut in August, 2019.

The 21-year-old joins Islam Slimani, Dario Benedetto, Gael Kakuta, Boubacar Kamara, Morgan Sanson, Jordan Amavi, Duje Caleta-Car, Tanguy Kouassi and Ruben Aguilar on the list.

He is currently the third highest-scoring African player in Europe behind Arsenal’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
