Since the start of 2022, Osimhen has been one of the standout young players in the world, with eighteen goals in thirty appearances combined for club and country. 


The 13th edition of the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards is being held on 17 November 2022.


This year’s event will anticipate the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and will crown the footballers, coaches, managers, agents and promising players who have distinguished themselves both on and off the pitch in the past season.
