Osimhen showed great speed and physicality to get the better of Chris Smalling before firing an unstoppable shot from an impossible angle past Rui Patricio.

And having watched the Nigerian, Mourinho has now urged his strikers to emulate the Super Eagles star.

“We have to be more decisive upfront, what lodges into the statistics are the shots on goal,” Mourinho said after the game.

“Then I also look at the half opportunities, those that you have to transform into opportunities as Osimhen did,” The Roma coach added.
