Aina, Awoniyi, Super Eagles Stars Named In Nigerian Team Of The Week


Sportandstudy.org runs the rule over Nigerian star performers abroad after monitoring how they fared over the weekend, and picks the Nigerian Team of the Week.

Daniel Akpeyi [Chippa United]

The Super Eagles goalkeeper played a vital role in ensuring Chippa United secured a much-needed point against Platinum Stars.

Akpeyi made a string of superb saves to add to his credentials as a good shot-stopper.

Ola Aina [Hull City]

The Chelsea loanee proved a constant threat going forward and, although his side conceded one goal, he was efficient in the discharge of his duties for the Tigers.

Tyronne Ebuehi [Ado den Haag]

Any match involving den Haag and Ajax Amsterdam usually end in favour of the former European champions but Ebuehi was a beast at the back for the hosts in the 1-1 draw.

William Troost Ekong [Bursaspor]

Ekong was the man to make Yeni Malatyaspor fall and fail to deliver. He was a huge and towering figure at the back to stop them in their tracks as Bursaspor won 4-2. He found the back of the net for the away team.

Ifeanyi Matthew [Lillestrom]

Matthew was a real handful, his passes, pace and physique was no match for the Kristiansund BK team in the 0-0 draw at the Aaraasen.

Anderson Esiti [KAA Gent]

Esiti has fitted in well with Gent’s style of play following his improved form for the Belgian Pro League side.

He was pivotal in the middle and his contributions were key for Gent in the 2-0 win at Oostende.

Rilwan Hassan [Midtjylland]

Hassan was one of Midtjylland’s stand-out players in the clash against Hobro. He set up Alexander Soerloth for the third goal in the 61st minute.

Taiwo Awoniyi [Royal Mouscron]

The Liverpool loanee scored one goal for Mouscron in their 2-1 loss to Zulte Waregem. It was his second goal of the season.

Henry Onyekuru [Anderlecht]

Onyekuru continues to hog the headlines in Europe for his fine scoring shape. He netted once in the 2-2 draw against Kortrijk in the Belgian top flight.

Odion Ighalo [Changchun Yatai]

The former Granada striker was influential for Yatai in their 5-1 win over Tianjin Teda. He was on song in the rout.

Gbolahan Salami [KuPS]

The Nigerian Balotelli was menacing and dangerous as KuPS picked three points at VPS. His hardworking show was rewarded with a goal for the visitors, who won 3-1.
