Why Osimhen will succeed at Napoli – Pundit

first_img In terms of shooting, Osimhen is also far more composed than his age might suggest, as 44% of his shots hit the target, which is much better than Mertens’ 35%. Milik’s stats look similar in that regard, but considering that the Pole seems eager to leave, it would certainly help if Napoli have a player of similar height and shooting accuracy. The Nigerian’s technical ability is not to be underestimated as well, as although he is right-footed, he is also very capable with his left, scoring seven goals with his supposed weaker foot. Of course, pointing out only the strong aspects of Osimhen’s game would be wrong, so just like Martin Schmidt who used to coach him at Wolfsburg admitted recently, the youngster still has a long way to go tactically. However, he already has remarkable speed and athleticism, so he already is a very strong player. Mentality wise, just like every young player, the 21-year-old needs to improve his concentration, but he plays with such fire and passion that could potentially make him instrumental for Gattuso’s vision of the team. Despite all this, the fact remains that Osimhen’s transfer is a huge gamble for Napoli. Becoming Napoli’s most expensive signing ever and one of the most expensive African players of all time surely comes with a burden, so the big risk here is to avoid the exaggerated transfer fee putting in unrealistic expectations towards the player. read also:Osimhen’s Napoli switch on, more offers arrive for forward – Lille chief It is no coincidence that the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea have shown interest in the Nigerian, so there is little doubt that Osihmen can light up Naples. He just needs to be given the chance. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen is arguably one of the best players in his generation and he’s capable of making a great impact with the Italian club, Napoli, according to football pundit, Vilizar Yakimov. The football pundit stated on football Italia that although Osimhen’s transfer is expensive and the Nigerian would be ready to justify the huge financial resources involved. “It’s obvious that even for €50m the expectations towards Osimhen will go way beyond the pure excitement that such a signing brings, but what exactly can he bring to Napoli? The Nigerian’s numbers clearly can’t justify his gigantic rumoured €81m transfer fee, as Osimhen scored 18 goals and four assists in all competitions for Lille, before Ligue 1 was cancelled due to the COVID situation. However, his age and playing style are what make him perfect for Napoli, as the 185cm tall striker possess impressive speed and physique, while his off the ball movement is simply remarkable. Osimhen is a player who likes to run in the channels and behind the back of opposition defences, which makes him a good for Napoli’s playing style. His acceleration and ability to run with the ball also mean he would be perfect for Gattuso’s counter-attacking approach in certain games. While neither Arkadiusz Milik nor Dries Mertens combine those qualities, Osimhen’s biggest advantage over them is the intensity of his pressing gamе. The Nigerian averages 1.3 recoveries in the final third, which is significantly higher than Milik’s 0.9, while his speed and agility are far superior to those of Mertens, who at 33, often loses some of his intensity in the latter stages of games. Osimhen’s presence in Napoli’s attack would allow the Partenopei to recover possession much easier and in more advanced areas of the pitch, while his speed and positioning in the penalty area will make the transition from defence to attack much smoother. This is further highlighted by Osimhen’s 78.9% progressive passes success rate, which is equal to Mertens, but significantly higher than Milik’s 64%.center_img Promoted Content5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks14 Hilarious Comics Made By Women You Need To Follow Right Now7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty PennyWhat Happens To Your Brain When You Play Too Much Video Games?6 Incredibly Strange Facts About HurricanesA Soviet Shot Put Thrower’s Record Hasn’t Been Beaten To This Day2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Best & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti6 Extreme Facts About Hurricaneslast_img read more


No. 1 Women of Troy look to stay undefeated

first_imgAfter defeating the defending champions, No. 3 Pepperdine University (6-2), in a 3-2 victory on Tuesday, the No. 1 ranked Women of Troy are set to face off against St. Mary’s and Cal State Bakersfield in Merle Norman Stadium.The Women of Troy have a 7-0 record and are off to their best start in program history. This week, however, is extremely hectic for the Women of Troy as they have six duals on the schedule. After Thursday, the Women of Troy head to Arizona to play against New Mexico, Grand Canyon and Arizona State.While this schedule may be tough, sophomore Sara Hughes has found a way to handle the rigors of the season.“Since our season is so short it is brutal,” said Hughes. “It’s hectic and not easy but we have to go to the training room. We have to take ice baths and be in with our trainer. It’s all about up keeping our bodies and maintaining our health.”While Hughes and her partner Kelly Claes have had an excellent start to the season winning the pairs tournament in Hawaii, they suffered their first loss of the season against Pepperdine.Even though these upcoming opponents may not be highly ranked, head coach Anna Collier knows that they will be challenging.“Both teams are going to be smaller and will rely more ball control,” said Collier. “We are used to teams who are big up front. They will drop a lot of different kind of strategies that we don’t see.”Cal State Bakersfield has a 6-2 record, but their two losses came against Pepperdine and Loyola Marymount. Thus far the No. 1 pairing of redshirt senior Mariah Alvidrez and senior Molly O’Hagan has been very consistent, winning six games. While the Bakersfield Roadrunners only have one player over the height of six feet in sophomore Sydney Hayes, they make up for lack of height in their style of play. They are extremely reliable defensively, and they find ways to score points.St. Mary’s has had a slow start to the season, with a 3-4 record. They began the year ranked No. 8 in the country but after two losing streaks, they have fallen out of the rankings. The Gaels utilize the strategy of having several players who play both indoor and sand volleyball. Unlike the Roadrunners, the Gaels have a number of players that are over six feet tall. Their top pairing senior Samantha Tinsley and junior Dalas Dodd are living up to the bill by winning six of their seven matches for Gaels this season.One of the most crucial pairings for the Women of Troy is their No. 3 pair with graduate student Meg Norton and senior Eve Ettinger. Norton transferred from UCLA and continues to gel with her new teammate.“I think we are still improving on team chemistry cause we are really good friends but we haven’t played together for very long, since I am new this year,” said Norton. “When we are connected in a match that is when we play our best.”The first dual match on Thursday starts 3 p.m. against the CSU Bakersfield followed by another dual match at 4:30 p.m. against St. Mary’s.last_img read more
