Osimhen stars as Lorenzo & Roberto Insigne joins Istvan & Ferenc Nyers in Serie A history book

The Insigne brothers becomes the first since 1949

Super Eagles star Victor Osimhen was in action as Lorenzo and Roberto Insigne joins Istvan and Ferenc Nyers in Serie A history book.

He was in action from the beginning to the end as Napoli secured a comeback 2-1 win against Benevento on Sunday.

Victor Osimhen and his teammates bounced back from a shocking 1-0 loss to AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League with a win in the Serie A against the newcomers.

Roberto Insigne put the home side in front at Stadio Ciro Vigorito before his elder brother and Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne equalised for the visitors.

Napoli then got the winner through Andrea Petagna following another good pass from Matteo Politano who was the provider of the first goal.

Lorenzo and Roberto Insigne became only the second brothers to have scored against each other in a Serie A game. Hungarian pair Istvan and Ferenc Nyers did the same back in 1949, while playing for Inter and Lazio respectively.
