With his efforts for the Gli Azzurri so far, the 24-year-old has obviously made the cut for the award, scoring a good amount of goals for the Serie A giants.

“Thank You For The Recognition, And To Those That Have Been Supporting Me Through The Years, I Appreciate Y’all.GOD Is The Greatest💯🙏🏽 @sscnapoli @Globe_Soccer” he added.
The failure of Nigeria to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which may have given the Nigerian attacker the opportunity to showcase more of his abilities on the international stage, is something he would like to forget for the time being.
However, his recent nominations and awards are evidence that he has consistently performed well.
