The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has called on Nigerians to vote for Super Eagles striker in the 2023 The Best FIFA Men’s Player award.
Osimhen was nominated for the award alongside current holder Lionel Messi, Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne and Kylian Mbappe.
Football fans are expected to vote for the player they feel should win the award.
The NFF took to their X (formerly known as Twitter) handle to lobby for votes for the Napoli striker.
“Vote for our own @victorosimhen9 here’s the link to do so fifa.com/the best fifa,” they posted.
Osimhen was a key factor as Napoli won the 2022/23 Serie A title scoring 26 goals and notching four assists in 32 games in the division.
He has scored three goals in four league games for the Partenopei this campaign.
Napoli are fifth in the Serie A table this season with seven points after four matches.
