The Super Eagles striker previously suffered from a facial fracture, which led to his regular use of a mask as protection.
An image of Victor Osimhen’s cake-based mask has been spotted in a post on the social media platform.
It should be noted that Osimhen, who began using a mask to protect his face after suffering a facial fracture, now has his mask recognized as a trademark and is adored by his admirers all over the world.
The outstanding performance of the Nigerian international, which made headlines recently, is no longer news. Yet, certain football teams and, this time, a lot of football fans in Naples and across the world, have taken notice of his brilliance in front of the goal.
Many sports fans queued up in certain instances, as previously reported by Soccernet.ng, to get a replica of the mask, and a boy’s picture wearing Osimhen’s mask and hairstyle quickly went viral on social media.
The little boy’s body and face were painted black with black mask to cosplay Victor Osimhen.

In a different instance previously reported by Soccernet.ng, some even composed a song just for the Nigerian in Naples that has become popular on TikTok.
In a recent tweet from footballogue, the Super Eagles player’s mask, jersey number, and name were all carved out in a cake to show how popular he is becoming among sports fans.

Meanwhile, with his 19 goals, the player now tops the Serie A league top scorers table, and has also cemented his love in the heart of the fans.
The Super Eagles’ talisman’s goal in his team’s 2-0 win against Empoli on Saturday marked him the second-youngest player to score in eight straight Series A games.
