Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen, Mauro Icardi, and Neymar have all been named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Week after their performance at the weekend.

The 20-year-old Super Eagles striker made the cut along in the three man attack along with Paris Siant-Germain duo after he rescued his side Lille from embarrassing home defeat by scoring the equaliser in the closing stages of the match on Sunday.

The announcement was made the Ligue 1 body via their official social media handle but  Osimhen has already scooped Lille’s player of the month award for September.

Former CAF Youth Player of the Year is also in line to clinch the Ligue 1 Player of the Month award for September, having been shortlisted along with Algeria international and Monaco striker Islam Slimani and Nantes’s Nicolas Pallois.

Osimhen will likely be a key player for Gernot Rohr’s men when the Super Eagles take on Brazil in an international friendly in Singapore on Sunday.
