Victor Osimhen, the Super Eagles and Napoli forward, has said he hopes to win the prestigious Ballon d’Or award in his career.
Osimhen is among the 30 players nominated for the 2023 Ballon d’Or.
Mohamed Salah, Andre Onana and Yassine Bonou are the other Africans on the shortlist.
Argentina captain, Lionel Messi and Manchester City forward, Erling Haaland are the favourites to win the award.
Osimhen is, however, determined to lay his hands on the award before hanging up his boot.
“If one day I could get closer to win it, that would be more than a dream come true for me. Just playing at this level is already amazing for me. If it comes, it comes,” the Nigeria international told Mario Balotelli’s Twitch Channel, Vox to Box on TV Play.
The 67th annual Ballon d’Or ceremony will take place on Monday 30 October 2023
