This prestigious lineup featured exceptional talents such as Mike Maignan, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Kim Min-jae, Andrea Bastoni, Theo Hernández, Stanislav Lobotka, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, Nicolo Barella, Rafael Leão, and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Osimhen’s nomination for several high-profile awards, including the FIFA Best and the Ballon d’Or, underscores the global recognition of his footballing prowess. His goal-scoring exploits and overall impact on Napoli’s success have propelled him into the spotlight on the international stage.

Despite facing a tougher start to the current 2023-24 campaign and grappling with recent injury setbacks, Osimhen has maintained an impressive goals-per-game ratio. With six goals from ten appearances in the 14 games played, he continues to be a formidable force on the pitch.
