Osimhen’s Stoppage-Time Goal Sends Lille Into French Cup Semi-Final

Osimhen’s Stoppage-Time Goal Sends Lille Into French Cup Semi-Final

Victor Osimhen’s goal tally this season has risen to 14 in all competitions as he scored a stoppage-time goal to secure a 2-0 win for Lille OSC in the French Cup quarter-final against fifth division side ESM Gonfreville on Saturday.

Lille must have felt some relief after the goal, not with the shockers that lower division sides have produced in the competition – FC Pau eliminated Bordeaux.

It was a game the visitors controlled and with 90+2′ on the clock, Osimhen buried the hopes of any comeback aspirations from Gonfreville.

The Nigerian’s form has become something that can’t be hidden as he has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid and current European Champions Liverpool.
