Nigerian singer, Peter Okoye, has landed in Italy ahead of Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League quarter-finals second-leg match between Napoli and AC Milan to give his support to Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen.
Okoye made this known on his official Twitter handle on Tuesday.
Osimhen missed the first leg of the encounter due to an injury he sustained during the Super Eagles’ Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Guinea-Bissau last month.
The forward, who has been in form for the Naple-based club, also saw him sit out two league games for Napoli.
The 24-year-old however returned to action on Saturday as he featured for 15 minutes in the Serie A draw against Hellas Verona.
Luciano Spalletti has hinted at Osimhen starting tonight’s encounter against the Rossoneri and Okoye in a tweet announced that he would be at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona to support his friend, Osimhen.
“Reporting LIVE from Napoli to support my G @victorosimhen9 #NapoliVsAcMilan,” Okoye wrote on his Twitter handle.
The Serie A leaders will hope to overturn their first-leg deficit and will bank on their top scorer to be at his very best as they hope to advance to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history.
Osimhen has scored four goals for Napoli in the prestigious club competition and will hope to extend that tally tonight.
