Victor Osimhen scored on his return from injury to help Napoli secure a 3-1 victory over Bologna in Sunday’s Serie A match.

The 22-year-old has been out of action since February 21 when he suffered a head trauma against Atalanta in a league game.

The Nigeria international landed awkwardly and hit his head on the turf following a collision with Cristian Romero in the encounter.

The forward was subsequently rushed to the hospital, where he spent the night, but after undergoing several tests, he was cleared of any serious injury but advised to rest before playing again.

Subsequently, Osimhen missed the Parthenopeans’ last seven games, including last Wednesday’s draw against Sassuolo.

On Sunday, the Super Eagles forward made his much-awaited return in style at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, scoring his third goal of the season.

Napoli started the game impressively and only eight minutes into the encounter, opened the scoring through Lorenzo Insigne.

Osimhen was introduced for Dries Mertens in the 53rd minute and wasted no time to announce himself in the encounter.

The Super Eagles centre-forward hit the back of the net after receiving a timely assist from Piotr Zielinski to double his side’s lead.
