Nigeria U23 star Oghenekaro Etebo beat compatriot Azubuike Okechukwu to the CAF Most Promising Player for 2015, while Nigeria U17 star Victor Osimhen was CAF Youth Player of the Year.

Etebo was top goal scorer at the U23 AFCON in Senegal with five goals, while skipper Okechukwu was MVP of the tournament as Nigeria won the tournament and qualified for 2016 Rio Olympics.

The Youth Player of the Year Award was won by another Nigeria star, Osimhen, who was record-breaking goal king at the U17 World Cup in Chile with 10 goals.

He upstaged Mali U20 star Adama Traore, who was the MVP of the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand.
