Osimhen breaks long standing record, makes Ballon d’Or nomination list


For the 2023 Ballon d’Or men’s Award, Nigerian attacker Victor Osimhen has been nominated alongside Lionel Messi of Inter Miami and Erling Haaland of Man City.

The Super Eagles star is the first Nigerian to be nominated for the prestigious award since Nwankwo Kanu in 1999.

The Napoli striker scored 26 Serie A goals last season to guide the Partenopei to the Scudetto for the first time in more than three decades.

Osimhen will compete with favourite and seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi who was instrumental to Argentina’s World Cup glory in Qatar.

There is also Manchester City forward Erling Haaland who had a stellar debut season with City as they won the treble for the first time in the club’s history.
