Who made it into the Futbalgalore.com.ng’s Nigeria Professional Football League Team of the Week? Ademetan Abayomi reveals all after the latest round of games.
Sharp Uzoigwe [FC Ifeanyi Ubah]
FC Ifeanyi Ubah’s number one goalie was superb, making five or six sensational saves against MFM FC. Superlative.
Samuel Ganda [Kwara United]
Getting back to his best and quietly efficient in the tackle. Helped net the opener and was one of the reasons along with Dele Aiyenugba for the clean sheet. Solid.
Charles Okafor [Akwa United]
Commanded the centre of defence and kept Sad’eeq Yusuf quiet while making some absolutely decisive blocks. Always ready to snuff out danger and the template for several aerial encounters. Dominant.
Peter Ambrose [Wikki Tourists]
Controlled his territory and forced away side to long rangers. Ambrose was impressive at the back. Dynamic.
Samuel Nnoshiri [Heartland]
Bossed the midfield allowing Heartland’s more creative players to do their business while stopping Adamawa United’s versions. Scored the opener. His amazing engine saw him switch to left back in the second half. Galvanizing.
Emeka Atuloma [Heartland]
Still one of Heartland’s best players and showed his sublime ability with some sumptuous service, to set up several attacks. Always alert to the half chance, it was his extremely well-crafted strike that helped Heartland win. Transcendent.
Manu Garba [Wikki Tourists]
It looked like he had played at Wikki Tourists all his life. Popped up everywhere. Gave Katsina United a hard time and worked magnificently to net twice. Inspired.
Nelson Esor [Rivers United]
Scored twice with two crisp efforts as Rivers United bowed 4-2 against Dakkada FC at the Nest of Champions. Majestic.
Mustapha Jibreel [Abia Warriors]
The former Mighty Jets youngster was here, there and everywhere. Definitely a star for the future. Untiring.
Musa Bashiru [Dakkada FC]
Bagged a brace and tortured the Rivers United backline. Unstoppable.
Chinonso Okonkwo [Lobi Stars]
The striker was simply mind-blowing. Okonkwo climbed off the bench to level up matters. His second was timely. Sublime.
