Nigeria international Victor Osimhen has continued his incredible start to life in the French Ligue 1, bagging a brace in Lille’s 3-0 win over Saint-Etienne on Wednesday evening.
The 20-year-old emerged from the bench to great effect, finding the back of the net either side of a Jonathan Bamba penalty.
Osimhen scored two goals on debut in a 2-1 win over Nantes earlier this month, and capped a superb August with another double.
The former RSC Charleroi striker arrived in Lille this month as a replacement for Arsenal’s Nicolas Pepe; signing a five-year-deal.
Victory moves Lille up to fourth on the log standings, three points behind early leaders Rennes.
