The Napoli striker is one of the most in-demand strikers on the planet. Find how just how good the Super Eagles star is good in the game.
Super Eagles of Nigeria star Victor Osimhen is currently courted by a host of elite clubs in Europe having established himself as one of the best young strikers on the planet.
The Napoli striker has been the biggest threat in Napoli’s attack joining from Lille in 2020.
The Nigeria international is having a great season at Napoli so far this campaign, having scored 14 times in 19 appearances in all competitions for the current Serie A league leaders.
He has been heavily linked with a move away from the Serie A giants next season, with multiple clubs across Europe, believed to be interested in him.
Osimhen is no doubt a real danger on the pitch, but many have asked questioned if he is as lethal in virtual reality.
In this article, we review an in-depth analysis of the Super Eagles’ undisputed no.9 in the iconic video game FIFA 23.
What is Victor Osimhen’s rating on FIFA 23?
Osimhen was awarded an OVR upgrade of +2 in the latest edition of EA’s soccer video game.
Not exactly underwhelming, but also not satisfactory in my opinion, considering his individual exploits for the Blue outfit last season.
However, regardless of what EA Sports might have been thinking when he was awarded that OVR considering his talent, he has an impressive Career Mode potential OVR of 89.
Victor Osimhen FIFA 23 Attributes
Osimhen’s stronger foot is his right. His work rates are High / Medium.
The 24-year-old striker also boasts a four-star weak foot rating while holding on to a three-star for his skill move.
Osimhen’s ultimate traits in the game are his pace, physicality, and shooting.
He is rated an incredible 90 for Pace, making his one of the fastest players in Serie A in the game, 86 for acceleration, and 93 for sprint speed.
He’s also rated 81 for his physicality, 90 for his jumping – making him a serious danger aerially, strength – 85, and 81 for stamina.
The Napoli star’s attacking traits are impressively highlighted in the game with his stats in front of the goal having been awarded 85 for positioning, 88 for finishing, and 79 for shooting, although that department deserves an 81 at least.
At the moment, Osimhen is unarguably one of the best young players in FIFA 23.
He’s also the highest-rated player in Napoli’s attack.
His rating might not be a current reflection of the player he is now, but he is definitely worth the hype in the game, although some level of attention needed to be paid to his work rate and even shooting.
Generally, we expect EA to make a major upgrade to Osimhen’s current in-game stats in subsequent updates this season, and ahead of the launch of EA Sports FC in 2023.
