It will be a straight shootout between Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze for the 2019 CAF Young Player of the Year.

The third nominee on the shortlist will be Achraf Hakimi from Morocco.

The awards ceremony will be staged in Egypt tomorrow night.

Both Osimhen and Chukwueze enjoyed a great breakthrough 2019 for both club and country.

The two forwards from the U17 World Cup-winning team of 2015 used the past year to announce their arrival in Europe.

Centre-forward Osimhen scored a harvest of goals for Sporting Charleroi on loan from German Bundesliga club Wolfsburg to earn a big-money transfer to French Ligue 1 side Lille.

And he has since gone on to justify this move by featuring among the leading scorers in the French top flight so much so that the talk now is of a bigger club in a bigger league.

Eagles stars Samuel Chukwueze (left) and Victor Osimhen (right). Who wins Tuesday night?
‘Samu’, on the other hand, caught the eye for La Liga outfit Villarreal with his exciting runs and tricky from the right-side of attack.

He will make his Super Eagles debut last year, three years after Osimhen did but it was he who enjoyed more playing time at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, where the Eagles finished third.

Osimhen has since filled in for the retired Odion Ighalo as the arrow head of Nigeria’s attack with a flourish of goals and he could now edge past Chukwueze for the prestigious CAF prize that has previously been scooped by the likes of Mikel Obi and Wilfred Ndidi.

Forget the Moroccan




1. Samuel Chukweze (22 May 1999).

was born in Abia State, Nigeria. He made his LaLiga Santander debut for Villarreal CF against Levante on 4 November 2018. Since then he's scored twice for the Yellow Submarine against Rayo Vallecano and Real Betis, making him the youngest player to have scored two or more goals in the competition this season.

- On 20 November 2018, he made his international debut for the Nigeria Super Eagles, playing 45 minutes in a 0-0 draw with Uganda.

- Chukwueze began playing football at the age of five, inspired by legandary Nigerian playmaker Jay-Jay Okocha who he used to watch on TV. He models his playing style on Arjen Robben, and as a fellow left-footed winger his game draws many parallels with the former Real Madrid star.

- He caught the eye with his performances in the Under-17 World Cup in 2015, which Nigeria won. His goal after just 25 seconds in a 5-1 win against hosts Chile was the fastest of the tournament, and he wentft on to win the Bronze Boot with three strikes in total.

- In 2017, he joined Villarreal CF from the famed Diamond Football Academy. Despite his success, his parents originally didn't want him to play football, but eventually allowed him to pursue his career after realising his prestigious talent.

We can't rule Hakimi off totally though. He had a stellar season for club and country also. Just that his position hardly wins any notable awards.
