Osimhen Makes Assurances About Napoli After Spartak Moscow Loss

The visitors went ahead to score three unreplied goals which came from Quincy Promes and Mikhail Ignatov in the fifty-fifth, eightieth and ninetieth minutes respectively, with Promes scoring a brace.

Osimhen, 22, ended up scoring for his team shortly before the final whistle after converting Giovanni Di Lorenzo's pass.

The red-hot striker took to his Twitter account right after match to express his optimism and confidence that despite the loss, Napoli will be back.

“We stand firm as a team no matter the outcome. 100% we will be back.” Osimhen wrote on Twitter.
