At Napoli, Victor Osimhen is known for his ability to score goals from everywhere, but that wasn’t the case against Guinea-Bissau. Note that he was waving his hands and complaining because he didn’t get any quality ball in the final third. In the second half, Osimhen’s teammates had several chances to square-play the ball, but they decided to shoot. Also, when his teammates tried to pass, it was either overplayed or underplayed On the other hand, note that Kvara is known for always looking for Osimhen with quality at Napoli. Hence, the Napoli star’s performance suggests that he needs his teammates to be at their very best on the pitch of play.
