World Football governing body, FIFA, has honoured Napoli and Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, with a special jersey and ball after a title-winning performance in the 2022/23 season.
Osimhen helped Napoli, his Italian club, win the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years by scoring 26 goals and registering four assists in 32 league appearances for the Partenopei.
He also scored five goals in six matches for his club in the UEFA Champions League.
Osimhen won the Golden Boot in Serie A, was named best forward and was included in the Team of the Season.
In a message to the player, FIFA wrote: “Victor Osimhen, you represent at the moment what football can do.
“From Lagos to Napoli where people love you, you have suffered, but your love for football and determination have guided you.
“Keep going, keep pushing. Africa needs examples and millions are watching and dreaming.”
