The Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has honoured Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen.
This is coming after Osimhen bagged the National Award of Member of the Order of the Federal Republic.
The 24-year-old finished as the tournament’s top scorer, winning the Golden Boot award along with the Silver Ball for his impressive performances.
His 10 goals in seven matches broke the long-standing record of nine goals in a single tournament previously jointly held by Frenchman Florent Sinama Pongolle and Ivorian Souleymane Coulibaly.
In recognition of his performance, the Super Eagles striker was presented with a personalised ball and shirt by Gelson Fernandes, FIFA Director Member Associations Africa.
“Victor Osimhen, you represent at the moment what football can do.
“From Lagos to Napoli where people love you, you have suffered, but your love for football and determination have guided you.
“Keep going, keep pushing. Africa needs examples and millions are watching and dreaming,” Fernandes wrote.
