Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, scored both goals as Napoli came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in their opening Europa League group stage tie on Thursday.
Kelechi Iheanacho assisted a goal for Leicester, but Osimhen stole the show with two second half goals to rescue his team tutored by Luciano Spalletti from defeat.
Wilfred Ndidi was sent off deep into stoppage time for two bookable offences.
The Foxes had taken the lead in the ninth minutes of the encounter, when an intelligent run from Iheanacho allowed Ayoze Perez to slot in at the far post for 1-0.
Brendan Rodgers’ men had to wait until after the hour to double their lead through Harvey Barnes, with Iheanacho turning provider on this occasion.
The 24-year-old former Manchester City youngster won possession in midfield before laying it off to Harvey Barnes who found the bottom corner.
Osimhen orchestrated Napoli’s comeback on 69 minutes with a brilliant finish inside the penalty area.
His first touch knocked the ball over Jannik Vestergaard’s head before clipping a shot over Kasper Schmeichel.
The €70 million striker then equalized on 87 minutes with a thumping header into the top corner from Matteo Politano’s cross to ensure Napoli returned to Italy with a point from England.
Osimhen’s brace means the former Lille striker has contributed seven goals in his last 10 appearances for Napoli.
The English side travel to Legia Warsaw in Poland, while Napoli will host Spartak Moscow in their next games on September 30.
