Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has insisted that star striker Victor Osimhen can win the Ballon d'Or.
Osimhen has had an excellent 2023 for Napoli, leading the club to a first Scudetto in over 30 years, and winning the Serie A Golden Boot in the process.
Osimhen was also in fine form for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, finishing as the top scorer in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualification campaign, with 10 goals.
His performances and remarkable goalscoring for club and country over the course of the 2022-23 football season have seen him nominated for the prestigious Ballon d'Or.
