Picking up the ball in the penalty area, Osimhen scooped the ball up with a delightful first touch, before using his chest to hold it close.

The striker then shielded the ball while doing keepie-uppies with his knee, before using his head to knock the ball between two defenders.

Using his pace, Osimhen somehow managed to keep hold of possession before cutting it back across the penalty area to Khvicha Kvaratskhelia who slammed it into the top corner of the net.

That goal put Napoli 2-0 up and while Cagliari managed to claw one back, Osimhen’s assist left social media in awe.
