Victor Osimhen breaks Cristiano Ronaldo’s Serie A record

0 78

During Napoli’s impressive 3-0 victory over Spezia on Sunday, Super Eagles of Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen broke Cristiano Ronaldo’s record with a leap of 2.58 meters.
When Victor Osimhen scored Napoli’s second goal against Spezia at the Stadio Alberto Picco, he broke Ronaldo’s record of four years earlier.

The goal against Spezia was truly extraordinary and might be a contender for the best-headed goal in football history, despite the fact that the Nigerian international has scored some fantastic headers throughout his career.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s penalty kick gave Luciano Spalletti’s team the lead following a scoreless first half. In the 68th minute, Osimhen then scored the game’s second goal with an outstanding effort.

The 24-year-old Nigerian striker leapt to a height of 8.47 feet (2.58 meters), which was higher than the crossbar, before outjumping Spezia goalkeeper Bartlomiej Drgowski (8 feet).

Osimhen reportedly cleared 2.58 meters with the jump, which is a height typical of NBA superstars, according to Corriere dello Sport.

By surpassing the previous record for the Italian Serie A, which stood at 2.56 meters and was set by Ronaldo during Juventus’ match against Sampdoria in 2019, Osimhen accomplished this feat.

Osimhen’s previous record was 2.52 meters, which he attained in the previous season against Torino at the Diego Maradona Stadium. With this achievement, the Nigerian international has undoubtedly reached a new apex in his football career.
