Ballon d’Or 2023: Osimhen finishes 8th in final rankings

Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen finished eighth in this year’s Ballon d’Or rankings.

This was confirmed on Monday at the event gala in Paris, France.

Osimhen makes the top 10 alongside names like Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi, Luka Modric, Kevin De Bruyne, Rodri, Bernardo Silva, Julian Alvarez and Vinicius Jr.

Last season, Osimhen led Napoli to their first Italian title in 33 years.

The 24-year-old scored 26 goals in 32 Serie A games for his club.

Messi is widely expected to win this year’s Ballon d’Or ahead of Mbappe and Haaland.

It will be a record-extending eighth time for Messi, who won the World Cup last year in Qatar.
