(Napoli Rangers 3-0) Leo Skerry Ostegaard (22) made his Champions League debut and scored for Napoli against Rangers.
The Norwegian central defender shook his head with a 3-0 goal for the Italian team, who won all five matches in the Champions League group.
– It was a special feeling. I worked hard for this, but I was ready to show my qualities, says Ostegaard in an interview on TV 2.
After scoring, he celebrated in front of the Napoli fans.
– I’ve always loved fans. For me, fans are everything. Scoring in front of them was an incredible feeling. The Norwegian says it’s a big moment for me.
So Napoli stands with 15 points, while Liverpool is in second place with 12 points. These two teams meet in the last round.
In addition to scoring, Ostegaard also made a perfect semi-defensive match.
– This is a strong team. When you get the chance, you just have to show your qualities. Today went well. Keeping a clean sheet is as important as scoring. It was a very good feeling.
National team goalkeeper Ostegaard had little time to play for in resplendent Napoli, but he got a chance right from the start in his third game for the club. This is his first goal for the club.
And soon the match was decided at Diego Maradona Stadium after Giovanni Simeone scored two goals in the first 16 minutes. Østigård’s goal came in the 80th minute after a corner kick from Giacomo Raspadori.
– Nice! Two or three took to the field and still managed to put the ball in the net, says Jesper Mathisen on the TV2 broadcast.
It is not easy to set this goal.
Leo Skiri Østigård came to Napoli in July 2022. In recent years, he has been on loan from Brighton to a number of clubs. St. Pauli, Coventry, Stoke and Genoa.
