AFCON 2023: CAF names Osimhen as Ivory Coast's top star

The African Confederation (CAF) has selected Victor Osimhen as one of the top 10 players to shine at the 2023 African Cup of Nations to be held in Ivory Coast.

CAF described Osimhen as “a key player in Nigeria's rich attacking team”.

The Napoli hitman scored 10 goals in qualifying, becoming the top scorer.

The 25-year-old also comes into the tournament as the current African Player of the Year.

This will be Osimhen's second appearance at AFCON.

The striker made his first appearance in Egypt five years ago, but missed the last tournament in Cameroon due to injury.

Senegal's Sadio Mane, Egyptian talisman Mohamed Salah and Mohamed Koudous are some of the other top stars predicted by CAF to shine in Ivory Coast.
