Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso has expressed his joy after Victor Osimhen scored his first Serie A goal in their 4-1 victory over Atalanta on Saturday.

Osimhen, who had fired blanks in his first two league games, scored in the 43rd minute after a brace from Hirving Lozano and a strike from Matteo Politano to put Napoli into a four-goal lead before the break.

"End Police Brutality in Nigeria", was hand-written on a white t-shirt held up by the attacker after he netted the fourth goal in a 4-1 Serie A win over Atalanta in Naples.

The Nigeria worldwide controlled goalkeeper David Ospina's long ball before beating Marco Sportiello with his fine effort, which ultimately rendered Sam Lammers' second-half strike a mere consolation for Atalanta.

USA budget deficit hit $3.1 trillion amid virus spending surge
A new round of stimulus payments and programs could add $2 trillion to the 2021 deficit just six weeks into the new fiscal year. In August, the monthly federal deficit came in at $200 billion as the amount of federal spending was halved from June.

The 21-year-old also tweeted after the game, "Having accomplished all I thought was impossible for me through GOD, now I know better, time for some limitless goals and desire".

"It was a fully deserved win. It wasn't easy but we have bought a player who is very important to us".

Having been ducked one point for their failure to honour their match day 3 clash away at Juventus before the worldwide break, the hosts handed the African record transfer his second league start of the campaign, hoping to make it 3 wins from 3.

Down but not out, the visitors grabbed a consolation in the second half via the boot of Sam Lammers before Osimhen was replaced for the final seven minutes as Napoli moved up to third on the log with 8 points.
