Many Nigerian players were in action for their respective clubs in the past week.
The top performers made TheCable’s team of the week.
Austin Ejide [Hapoel Eran Hadera]
The veteran goalkeeper was vital to Hadera’s crucial win. He made six point key saves. Impressive.
Ola Aina [Torino]
Ola Aina’s stock keep on rising by the day. The versatile defender proved his mettle at Chievo Verona. Reliable.
Efe Ambrose [Hibernian]
The former Celtic star is the most consistent Nigerian defender abroad. His leadership qualities helped Hibernian steal a 1-0 victory at St.Mirren. Consistency.
Brian Idowu [Lokomotiv Moscow]
Idowu was explosive at the left hand side for Locomotive against Akhmat. Crucial.
Wilfred Ndidi [Leicester City]
He produced an all round display for the Foxes in the well-deserved win at Newcastle United. He bossed his territory. Outstanding.
Henry Uche Agbo [Standard Liege]
Agbo is back to his best. He started the season on a low with some inconsistent displays. He churned out a perfect show at Oostende. Excellent.
Kingsley Michael [Perugia]
The on-loan Bologna youngster got off the bench to help Perugia grab a 1-1 draw at Consenza. His goal was well taken. Superb.
Chukwuma Akabueze [Boluspor]
Bentley continued to keep tongues wagging in the Turkish Division One. He was very direct and dangerous in the 3-1 win at Istanbulspor. Dangerous.
Bankole Adekuoroye [SFK Sered]
Bankole Adekuoroye made Nitra defenders look ordinary with runs down the channels. Like a cheetah, he was unstoppable and he scored two goals. Outstanding.
Moses Ebiye [Stroemmen]
Ebiye grabbed the headlines in the Scandinavian region with an eye-catching performance last weekend. A brace and an assist for his club capped a man of the match display for him. Impressive.
Tosin Ayegun [Ventspils]
Ayegun scores even with his eyes closed. The powerful forward delivered upfront with two goals for Ventspils against Jelgava. Deadly.
