Victor Osimhen, the Nigeria international and Napoli star, has been making headlines for all the right reasons, earning him and his teammates a spot on the Serie A team for the 2022–23 league season.
The Nigerian international, who shares traits with Didier Drogba, his childhood hero, has emerged this season as one of Europe’s deadliest marksmen.
The prolific striker, who began his football career at the Ultimate Strikers Academy in Lagos before making a name for himself with the Super Eagles at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup, broke the record for most goals scored by an African player in the Italian league.
The Nigerian striker surpassed George Weah with 46 goals to become the African with the most goals in the top division after his goal against Fiorentina on Sunday, May 7, 2023, at the Diego Maradona Stadium.
In a typical 4-4-2 formation to be deployed by the technical team of Italian Serie A, Napoli produced Kim Min-Jae, a centre-back; left winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia; and the leading marksman, Victor Osimhen.
Victor Osimhen, a former forward for Lille, has been paired with Lautaro Martínez, Inter Milan’s captain, who played in 36 games, scored 20 goals, and provided five assists.
The lanky Nigerian striker was adjourned Serie A Player of the Month once in the 2022-2023 season in January 2023; he has won it twice since joining the Italian league, and he also won the Serie A Goal of the Month in the same month.
The team is made up of Lazio’s goalkeeper, Ivan Provedel; the right-back and left-back positions were dedicated to Stefan Posch of Bologna and AC Milan’s Theo Hernandez. Kim Min-Jae of Napoli and Danilo Pereira of Juventus were chosen as the centre-back pairing.
In midfield, Mattia Zaccagni from Lazio featured on the right wing, while Napoli and Georgian red-hot midfielder Khvicha Kvaratskhelia secured the left-wing positions in the Serie A team of the season. Lorenzo Pellegrini of AS Roma and Sergej Milinković-Savić of Lazio were given the central midfield roles.
Lautaro Javier Martinez, the second-highest goal-scorer in Serie A this season, and Victor Osimhen, who seems to get stronger each week, are the two leading strikers in the 4-4-2 formation.
