Lille's Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen (C) vies with Nantes' Malian defender Molla Wague during the French L1 football match between Lille (LOSC) and FC Nantes at the Pierre Mauroy Stadium in Villeneuve-d'Ascq northern France, on August 11, 2019.

The in-form forward scored two attractive goals in his Ligue One debut as Lille put Nantes to the sword on Sunday and he has shared what pushes him to stick the ball in the back of the net with such regularity.

Osimhen, who cost Lille 14 million Euros when he moved from Belgian club Sporting Charleroi, opened scoring for the home team in the 19 minute. I'm not yet 100 per cent but I'm training hard and I know that with time I'll be in top shape physically.

The five-time Nigeria global, signed from Belgian outfit Charleroi in the close season, quickly displayed his pace by racing clear and slotting home the opening goal in the 19th minute.

Per 247Sports he was the No. 77 overall recruit, the No. 5 dual-threat quarterback, and the No. 10 prospect from Georgia . As a Buckeye, Martell completed 23 of 28 passes for one touchdown, adding another 128 yards and two scores on the ground.

Osimhen formed a front four alongside Tim Weah, Jonathan Ikone and Jonathan Bamba - a combo that will surely produce plenty of goals as the Ligue 1 season gets underway.

Osimhen would be hoping to continue his impressive form when Lille face Amiens at Stade de la Licorne on August 17.

The 20-year-old is now the third Nigerian player to be signed by Lille after Enyeama and Odemwingie.

The likes of Sani Kaita and Lukman Haruna have also featured for Monaco.
