Lille striker Victor Osimhen has become the second Nigerian player to win the prestigious Prix Marc-Vivien Foé, awarded to the best African player in Ligue 1 for the 2019-2020 season, allnigeriasoccer. com reports.

Since Vincent Enyeama won the award in 2014, no Nigerian player has managed to win the accolade, though the former Nigeria goalkeeper made the top six in 2015 and 2016.
