The Best FIFA Men's Player: Osimhen nominated alongside Messi, Mbappe, Rice, Haaland, 7 othersPublished: September 14, 2023
Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen has been nominated for another prestigious award.
The Napoli striker has been named in the 12-man nomination list for the Best FIFA Men's Player award for his performance over the last 12 months.
He was named alongside Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice, Manchester City stars Julian Alvarez, Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Ilkay Gundogan and Rodri.
Osimhen recorded 31 goals in all competitions for Napoli last season and also helped the Italian outfit scoop the league title.
He was not only in form for his club, the former Lille forward finished as the top scorer in the just-concluded 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers having scored 10 goals for Nigeria.
The 24-year-old is also in the running for the Ballon d'Or alongside 29 others.
The award was formally known as FIFA World Player of the Year and FIFA Ballon d'Or but has been called the Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year since 2016
Other players listed for the award are seven-time winner Lionel Messi, Marcelo Brozović, Kylian Mbappe and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
