Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen and Asisat Oshoala have been named in the CAF Player of the Year final three-man list for the men and women categories, respectively
Osimhen who finished as the top scorer in the 2023 African Cup Nations qualifiers will battle Egypt’s Mohammed Salah, Morocco’s Achraf Hakimi, and Algeria’s Riyad Mahrez for the top gong.
The Nigerian was also instrumental in Napoli’s Scuddeto success last season winning the Golden Boot after scoring 26 goals.
Oshoala, the reigning African women’s player of the year has pitched with South Africa’s Thembi Klagtlana and Zambia’s Barbara Banda for the top prize.

Oshoala scored 21 goals in just 28 games to lead FC Barcelona to the 2022/23 Spanish League title and was the Spanish club’s top scorer with 27 goals in all competitions. The 28-year-old was instrumental as Barcelona retained their domestic title and won the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

The award ceremony will take place on 11 December 2023 in Marrakech, Morocco.
