CAF Awards 2023: Osimhen Wins African Player of The Year As Asisat Oshoala Took Her 6th

Nigerian Super Eagles poster boy, Victor Osimhen has been crowned the 2023 CAF player of the year alongside his country woman and sister, Asisat Oshoala after a super impressive 2023-2024 season with Napoli. Osimhen led Napoli to winning the league after a long drought of 34-years.

Oshoala is winning the award for a record, 6th times as the African Women’s player of the year.
The 2023 CAF awards already looked at Victor Osimhen direction because of his performance so far.., the 24-year-old was seen as the major contender for the award after finishing eighth in the 2023 Ballon d’Or, the highest finish for any African player in this year’s edition of the award.

Winning the 2023 edition of the CAF Player Of The Year makes Osimhen the first Nigerian to win the award since Nwankwo Kanu won it in 1999.

Osimhen won the award ahead of Egypt’s Mohamed Salah of Liverpool, and Morocco’s Achraf Hakimi of Paris Saint Germain.

The Napoli striker, who scored 26 goals last season, made history as the first African player to win the Serie A Golden Boot.
