VIDEO: Osimhen assists, scores Drogba-esque goal as Napoli fall 3-2 to Fiorentina

....Napoli title push suffer a fresh blow

Victor Osimhen assisted a goal and scored a Didier Drogba-like goal as Napoli fell 3-2 to Fiorentina in a Serie A game on Sunday.

The title hopeful Napoli needed a win to keep up the chase but were undone by Fiorentina who secured a back-to-back win after their Coppa Italia extra time back in January.

Victor Osimhen assisted Dries Mertens’ second-half goal which happened to be Napoli’s 1-1 equalizer goal after Nicolas Gonzalez had put the away team up in the first half.

Arthur Cabral and Jonathan Ikone scored two more goals to hand Fiorentina a 3-1 lead but Victor Osimhen controlled and fired with venom so much that former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will be proud of the strike.

Here is watch goal:

The defeat means Napoli dropped to the 3rd spot level on point with Inter Milan who had played one game less, and 1 point behind league leaders Milan who will play later today.
