Late drama as Isaac Success cancels Osimhen’s goal to rescue point for Udinese

A late strike from Isaac Success salvaged a vital point for Udinese as they held Napoli to a 1-1 draw, despite Victor Osimhen‘s efforts for the visitors.

Napoli, missing several key starters, looked to Osimhen for breakthrough, and the Nigerian striker delivered with a headed goal early in the second half.

However, Udinese refused to back down, and Success, another Nigerian star, found the back of the net in stoppage time to snatch a vital point for the relegation-threatened side.

The match saw both teams creating chances, with Udinese testing Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret on several occasions, with no luck.
