Moses Simon nominated for 2022 Marc-Vivien Foe award

Super Eagles winger, Moses Simon of FC Nantes, is one of the twelve players on the final shortlist for the Marc-Vivien Foé Prize in 2022.

The Marc-Vivien Foé award is given to the finest player representing an African national football team in Ligue 1. It is named after the Cameroonian player who died in 2003 at the age of 28.

The award has previously been won by two Nigerians, with goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama winning in 2014 and Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen winning two years ago. Gael Kakuta of the Democratic Republic of Congo won the award last year.

Following his outstanding year with Nantes, Simon is a strong contender for the prize this year. One of the reasons why the Yellow Canaries are flying high in the French top flight is because of the Super Eagles star. 

This season, the 26-year-old Nigerian international has produced 26 percent of Nantes’ league goals (three goals and seven assists). Simon’s efforts were recognized earlier this season when he was named player of the month for August and September by Nantes.

However, the dynamic winger will go up against 11 other African players, including Moroccan full-back Achraf Hakimi of Paris Saint-Germain and Cameroonian Karl Toko Ekambi of Olympique Lyon.

The winner will be announced on May 16, 2022.

Full List of Nominees

1. Yunis ABDELHAMID (Stade Rennes, Morocco)

2. Nayef AGUERD (Stade Rennes, Morocco)

3. Achraf HAKIMI (Paris Saint-Germain, Morocco)

4. Sofiane BOUFAL (Angers, Morocco)

5. Mohamed BAYO (Clermont Foot, Guinea)

6. Seko FOFANA (Ivory Coast, RC Lens)

7. Idrissa Gana GUEYE (Senegal, Paris Saint-Germain)

8. Wahbi KHAZRI (Tunisia, Saint-Étienne)

9. Mario Lemina (Gabon, OGC Nice)

10. Moses SIMON (Nigeria, FC Nantes)

11. Karl TOKO-EKAMBI (Cameroon, Olympique Lyonnais)

12. Hamari TRAORÉ (Mali, Rennes)
