Nigeria young striker Victor Osimhen took home the Golden Shoe as the top scorer, while Kelechi Nwakali received the Golden Ball award for the competition’s best player.
2 Kelechi’s in the starting line-up? Maybe oneday … Nwakali is a right-footed playmaker with good technical attributes and emerged from the ASJ Academy in Owerri.
