Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen has received goodwill messages from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on the occasion of his 21st birthday.
Osimhen, a member of the 2015 FIFA Under 17 gold-winning team and tournament golden boot winner, received these via the official twitter handles of the bodies.
“Happy birthday to the gangling and prolific goal poacher @VictorOsimhen9. Have a good one Vic” NFF wrote.“
In a similar vein, his French club, Lille also rolled out a birthday wish. His 13 goals in 23 matches before the yuletide break fetched him a message which states “ A very happy 21st birthday to @victorosimhen9. Send your best wishes to our @NGSuperEagles#Naija striker.”
Meanwhile, CAF who recently nominated him for the 2019 CAF young player of the year award, crowned it with “ Happy Birthday to rising star @victorosimhen”
Since Osimhen moved from Belgian side, R. Charleroi S.C. to French side, Lille, his form hit a superlative dimension.
Osimhen’s current form has seen Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool show interests in him as the January Transfer Window draws near.
